[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This picture shows the Chobe National Park elephants in their natural environment in the dry season.

This herd of about 30 elephants just left the shore of the Chobe river, where they spent about 3 hours in the afternoon, and heading back to deeper bushes to feed.

Elephants feed around 16-18 hours a day. The elephant population of Chobe National Park and surrounding areas is estimated at 120,000 elephants.

When the rainy season starts in November this all area will become green and most of the elephants will move away from the river, since they will not depend that much on the river water to drink.

Hello Nick
A nice habitat shot. Often times there is a tendency to photograph the species up close. While such photographs have their own value I think habitat shots such as this provide a lot more information on the species and the habitat it interacts with. Thanks for the note and TFS.
