#1 MasaiMara Big Five - elephant family

Posted by
kiwisa (North Shore, New Zealand) on 16 August 2018 in Animal & Insect and Portfolio.

In Africa, the big five game animals are the lion, leopard, rhinoceros, elephant, and Cape buffalo. We were fortunate to see the Big 5 in 24 hours - so I will be sharing them over the next 5 days.
Toward the end of the first day we came across this herd with many babies.

After seeing yesterdays image, it looks like you got there shortly after the mating season! The young animals are so precious.

@dobbino: Ha ha, I believe earlier in the year is the best time for births.

A superb image. I am concerned at the growing number of these beautiful creatures being poached. I think your series shows just why we should protect these animals. 5*

@Shaun: Yes we should protect them, I wish these countries who have the privilege of sharing their land with these amazing animals were more conservation inclined.
