The brown and white pony on the left seemed to lead the other horses. They have largish tummies from eating salty sea grass, the salt retaining the water. Once the females have babies the tummy stays as it is.
The sun is just dropping toward the horizon and lighting up this small herd of trotting zebras. Note the large termite mound in the background. Some of these mounds are hundreds of years old, melting down somewhate in every rainy season and rebuilt in the dry.
Very young little elephant moving with mother and family. This family were bathing in a waterhole but were too far to really capture with my lens. The intelligence and inter-relatedness of the elephant is readily apparent and adds to the preciousness of their survival as a species.
Female elephants form a matrilineal family group, with 10 or more members; 3 pairs of mothers, their young and led by the eldest female. On the right is a tiny baby behind her mother's hind leg. The elephant on the left, only half in the picture appears to be the matriarch.
These are bachelor males, which form a sub-heard of individuals 4 to 7 years of age. During the dry season they are a bachelor herd, but rejoin the females for the duration of the wet season to mate and protect the calves. Adult males "play and spar".
I think the buffalo closer to the camera is female because she has no "boss" on her head, while the larger buffalo behind is male because he does have the horn boss. They can be very threatening as the male appears to be here.
The eland is a large spiral horned antelope. They can form herds of up to 500 individuals. When they move as a herd they are accompanied by a clicking sound which some believe is the sound of the two halves of their hooves coming together when raised.
