As we were crossing the river on the raft near Kafunta lodge, in the South part of South Luangwa National park, this herd of elephants decided to cross the river as well, but the other way. I grabbed my camera and took a series of shots. I wanted to show the animals in their habitats. Unfortunately, when the elephants cross the river, they enter the Game Management Area (GMA) were they enter into conflict with people.
