Savanna by KlepikovaDaria

A savanna or savannah is a grassland ecosystem characterised by the trees being sufficiently widely spaced so that the canopy does not close. The open canopy allows sufficient light to reach the ground to support an unbroken herbaceous layer consisting primarily of grasses

Zambezi Temper by EtienneOosthuizen

My Website:

Each year in the Lower Zambezi National Park, thousands of elephants move towards the Zambezi River, as the Escarpment starts to dry. Its the bull Elephants that usually the cross the various channels to reach islands. There are not a lot of other animals that makes these crossing, so these islands are good area’s to find plenty of food.

We had this lovely sand bar that developed in front of our camp Old Mondoro in the Lower Zambezi National park, which the elephants had to cross to get through the main channel. What was special about this stretch of sand it was shallow enough for the elephants to move quickly and splash alot of water around for amazing atmosphere to the images. It was also the perfect distance from the camp so I could get my guests to lie on the ground above the water line and photograph the elephants from a safe position.
