The Sunset with Ellies

Close encounter with elephants

Cow herds and younger bulls are treated with a great deal of respect. Late afternoons in the latter part of the dry season see numerous cow herds coming down to the Zambezi after a day's feeding they come for drinking and bathing or just for a late snack- this is generally not a good time to be walking on the Mana Pools shoreline...

 

Encontro imediato com elefantes

Manadas de Aliás e elefantes machos mais jovens são tratados com muitíssimo respeito. No final das tardes, na parte final da estação seca, vêem-se numerosas manadas de femêas vindo para as margens do Zambezi, depois da alimentação do dia, eles vêm para beber e banhar-se, ou só para um lanchinho- esta geralmente, não é uma boa hora para estar andando pelas margens de Mana Pools...
