info

There weren’t any problems with finding elephants in parks in Tanzania, with the availability of information about animals which could be observed there. The word “park” doesn’t have much in common with our European image of the space you have to face. A national park often means a space as vast as thousands of square kilometers. In RSA there were no encounters with elephants. In Tanzania I could observe whole herds of them, smaller or larger ones. I even made an attempt to count them once, on a difficult, slightly wooded and curvy terrain, I counted 47 specimen! Africa! Although photographing elephants was not on my dream list, with such an ease of photographing elephants, I couldn’t resist taking photos of this largest land mammal in the world.  Despite many observations of elephants I didn’t manage to encounter those biggest elephant loners – males whose weight can exceed 7 tons!
