Photographer's Note

Botswana is known to have the highest elephant population in Africa, with the Chobe River supporting up to 50 000 in the dry season when the water in the hinterland had dried up. And the number of all elephants in Botswana is estimated to be 120 000. So, how I could not post the elephant photos?
While on a cruise on Chobe river we observed fascinating scene. On one side of the river stood a group of elephants. Then we saw the another group on the opposite site. At one moment this group started to cross the river. The babies were holding the tails of mothers with their trunks. At some moments they were quite under water. But as we can see on the main photo, they were warmly welcomed by the waiting group.

In WS both groups of elephants.
