Our May 2022 Small Group Safari in South Africa was full of wildlife and wonderful photographic opportunities and settings. We photographed in Kruger Park, Sabi Sands Reserve, and at a special private wildlife hide at water level to a watering hole
Elephants are frequently our photo subjects while on safari. Their size, shape, intelligence, and trunk are just a few things that make them great subjects and very interesting. There are many opportunities for unique, beautiful, and descriptive images of elephants.
Elephants can be very entertaining and display many personality traits. We were thrilled to spend some time with an elephant family at a mudbath.
For a wildlife photographer, the more you know your subject, the better informed your images will be. Knowledge helps you anticipate and interpret the natural actions of your subjects.
Elephants are very smart and interesting subjects, especially when you can pick out social behaviors – some you may recognize from our own human experience.
