Mock charge

On a recent visit to Kuzuko Lodge in the greater Addo Elephant National Park we had some amazing sightings.  The afternoon game drive started with a close up sighting of their two male lions before we encountered a herd of elephants in a valley close to the lodge.  The matriarch put up a spectacular mock charge what with flapping ears, stamping of feet and the shaking of a poor little bush.  Unfortunately I didn't have me camera at the ready and missed the whole performance.  Shortly later we did have this young bull look at us with a bit of attitude and a skew camera angle gave me very much the same effect as if it was the matriarch in the picture. 


  1. Fabulous shot of the elephant!

  2. Wow! Great action shot of the young bull... at least you got to experience the mock charge before that, even if you didn't capture it :-)

  3. And here I am telling everyone how peaceful I found the Addo elephants compared to those here In Kruger National Park. :)
