This female elephant  was unhappy we were there, and try to dismiss us...
... then she did a mock charge...
... and enjoyed seeing us scamper away !
Red-billed hornbill
Crowned Lapwing, Vanellus coronatus
Helmeted Guineafowl
Impala doe
Elephant mandible
With such a long tongue, no need for handkerchief !
This male giraffe made an attempt to mount the female but she moved away and now has a "wet spot" on her right buttock, or maybe this was a homosexual act common in giraffes (a few images below, the ossicones  are bare and not tufted (sign of male giraffe).
Pesky oxpeckers
Plains zebras
One of the few surviving Baobab. Elephant damage them by eating the soft wood for water. This one has a protective fence to prevent damage by elephants
Waterbuck (Kobus ellipsiprymnus = "ellipse on the rump")
Pretty close ! But we will have closer encounters later !
