Malawi – just elephants!

As you’ve probably gathered from the photos from Malawi I’ve posted so far, the birding was pretty good, and the scenery was constantly superb. But both of these were surpassed by our first experience with African Elephants: we found a group of c.64 animals from a boat trip one morning, and had the privilege of watching them feeding, bathing, drinking and even wrestling at pretty close range for around half an hour. I really can’t think of a more impressive or memorable wildlife encounter – they were just fantastic! Photos can’t really do justice to the real thing… but here are the best I could do.
