We saw an elephant coming close to the general are (you can see our guests in the background!) and my husband and myself wanted to get a different perspective. So we sprinted to the the rivers edge. The elephant decided to walk in between the lodge and the river - perfect timing! It looked at us for a moment... I was holding my breath, because this giant animal was almost hovering over us. A bit scary, but it gave us a pretty impressive point of view!
Please keep in mind that this was shot with my iPhone - that is more my kind of thing. I leave the professional camera for my husband to handle, as he does that quite well :-)
