This post is follow-up to the Mara crossing – African elephant from a couple of weeks back. While majority of the herd crossed the Mara river without any drama, one of the Elephants decided to settle down in the middle of the river. It took us a minute to realise that this Elephant wasn’t crossing the river, but it was wallowing in it, making an interesting photo opportunity.

After a few minutes of rolling from side to side, the Elephant got up, drank some water before crossing the river and joining the rest of the herd.
