Chris Marshall – Pilanesburg, South Africa

I caught this elephant just as it came out of the trees into a clearing. It appeared a little agitated as we were fairly close. There are over 2000 elephants in this game reserve. Pilanesburg National Park is home to about 10,000 large mammals. The elephant is just one of the Big 5 animals found in the park, the others being rhinoceros, buffalo, leopard and lion. Visiting Pilanesburg was one of the highlights of my South Africa trip.
