Photographer's Note

During one of our morning game drives in the South Luangwa National Park we came across a family of African Elefants. I liked the morning athmosphere with the mist everywhere. The elephants did not show any sign of disturbance so I could take a picture of having the baby suckling milk from its mother.

South Luangwa National Park in eastern Zambia, the southernmost of three national parks in the valley of the Luangwa River, is a world-renowned wildlife haven. It supports large populations of Thornicroft's Giraffe, and herds of elephant and buffalo often several hundred strong, while the Luangwa River supports abundant crocodiles and hippopotamuses.
Founded as a game reserve in 1938, it became a national park in 1972 and now covers 9,050 kmē.
