First Zebras, Then Come the Elephants
Etosha National Park is so large that we traveled more than one hundred miles with our heads out the roof of the truck on our own personal game drive. Zebras coming from three directions converged on this water hole. At one point there were over 500 Zebras and then came the Elephants. Two Elephants came out of the brush to chase the Zebras away from the water hole and after getting tired of their game they just left. Our trucked was surrounded by barking Zebras, hundreds of them, and they do make a sound like a dog barking. Our driver pointed out that the Elephants never took a drink there as the as the water was in a concrete pool and the Elephants can't reach the water, they can't bend that far down.
