Viewing elephants is always entertaining, if your safari co-insides with the dry season and the related heat, you’re sure to get some interesting time with them when they take to the water splashing and playing and at the same time cooling off, being in water is one of their favorite pass times.

The images in this blog show just how comfortable elephant are in water, even the small calves readily take to big bodies of water such as the Zambezi River pictured above. Often, when they approach the water, the calves will start squealing with delight at the anticipated fun and pleasure they are about to have when they hit the water. I often sit in the heat wishing I was them and could join them in the water, never a good idea in those parts of Africa, the crocs rule the water!
