  1. This is why I LOVE Freshly Pressed. I had no idea that this morning, I would see such a cool photo from half-way around the world.

    Thank you!

    Amazing image. Congratulations on being Freshly Pressed.

  3. What a beautiful shot! Congrats on Freshly Pressed.

  4. The tusks on that elephant seem to be asymmetrical. I often wonder if elephants are vain and get self-conscious about things like that, or for that matter if an elephant knows what asymmetrical means.

    Beautiful picture! I went to Kruger about 2 years ago, I’m actually talking about it in my blog, if you’re interested.

    Elephants are so amazing, yet our current lifestyle causes so many problems for them!

  20. Gorgeous pics! Looking forward to more! Congrats on Freshly Pressed!

  21. Lovely 🙂 If you are ever in the area, Addo Elephant Park in the Eastern Cape, SA, is also very nice. One day I’ll head to Kruger, but right now the distance is not feasible for a South African student-budget.

    I’m from South Africa – currently living and blogging about South Korea. I have been to the Kruger National Park on many occasions. Seeing this post reminded me of home. Thank you! I can’t wait to return for Christmas. 🙂

    WOW! love the pic!

  41. I’d like to say a few things about Kruger Park. Nadine Gordimer, the author of The Ultimate Safari, went throigh this park during the civil war in Mozambique without the knowledge of the forest officials to save her life along with her family. She was 9 yrs old then. I had read the story in my English Literature book of Class X.

  42. Magnificent creatures. congrats!

  45. Julia says:

    Sorry I spelt elephants wrong. Typo. O.O

  46. Julia says:

    Wow….did I really spell it wrong again…? Lol

  47. qcwhfytl says:

    I really like that you have a tags list in the sidebar.

  48. What a beautiful photo, from a beautiful place… If you like me find Elephants intriguing, read the Elephant Whisperer by Lawrence Anthony. Came across his book, while on holiday at Thula Thula Game Reserve (The owner happens to be the author).
