in the first row in Chobe national park. (Who looks at whom ? )
Chobe National Park, in northwest Botswana, has one of the largest game concentration in Africa continent.
The park is probably best known for its spectacular elephant population: 50,000 elephants today, it is actually the highest elephant concentration of Africa.

Fine elephants, but the spectators sitting comfortably in their boat make the situation seem rather absurd, like it's not quite for real. I have also got that "Kolmården feeling" the few times I have been to African national parks.
A well captured moment.

Hi Boa, they look as if they are wrestling. Amazing photo with your interesting complementary note. 50.000 elephants only in Chobe...It's incredible but I am happy to hear that there's still intense elephant population in Africa.

Curious shot, the compression of perspective gives the impression that they are just a few meters away from the elephants, but at the same time the 3 planes are very well separated. The flawless exposure and the good framing/crop also contributes to make it as attractive as it is effective as documentary.
TFS, Regards, José.

A very strange pov and composition - making this quite a funny photo. It is the relaxed pose that the spectators are taking which makes this photo so different. Tfs, Marlene

funny photo :) I like this curious observation! Who is watching whom? and there is a third person - the invisible photographer - who is taking a photo of those who are watching one another :)

Nice big mammals interacting in the middle of the green, with the humans very close. Amazing.
