Play Time – Sabi Sands Game Reserve, South Africa

Just got back to Johannesburg last night and headed home on the flight from hell (16 ½ hours) tonight to Atlanta and then on home to Connecticut. What a great trip exploring the wildlife in South Africa with great old friends and brand new ones. Lots of long days in temperatures that averaged around 100 degrees. Despite the long flight and the heat, the wildlife was well worth the inconveniences.

I shot this photo in Sabi Sands Game Reserve. Our guides were amazing and they got us into position to ride beside a herd of more than fifteen elephants. These two young elephants decided to spend some time playing as the herd headed toward the water hole. What a great experience, one that I will never forget.
