  • For our elephants, an ordinary day in the wild includes a lot of play fighting. They might make a lot of noise, they may even break down a bit of the vegetation, but it's all in the name of fun and games.

  • Knobbly knees and pointy ears protrude from behind thick brush. As humans, we think we are the only ones cable of being curious, but the truth is that any animal has the ability to be curious. They also have the ability to be shy or nervous. There are so many ways in which we relate. And there are so many reasons why we must share the space with them, why we must learn to co-exist. 🙌🌄 Photo: @shalamah.tautaiolefue . . . #regram #erindi #erindinamibia #zebra #curious #coexistence #mood #animalkingdom #africa #photography #nakedplanet #travel #safari #wildlife #animals #wilderness #natgeo #natgeowild #picoftheday #explore #travelgram #wildlifephotography #protectwildlife #lonelyplanet

  • Wild dogs may be pretty to photograph, but there’s no mistaking how fierce they are. Being successful pack hunters, they are able to chase antelope for miles until their prey reaches exhaustion. The pack will bite the legs and rear of their prey until they bring it down. During this process, they are incredibly vocal and will eat unbelievably fast. Interestingly, the pups get to eat first - a reverse hierarchy of sorts. 🐾💕 Photo: @jason_block1 - - - #regram #erindi #erindinamibia #wilddog #predator #paintedwolf #fierce #animalkingdom #africa #photography #nakedplanet #travel #safari #wildlife #animals #wilderness #natgeo #natgeowild #picoftheday #explore #travelgram #wildlifephotography #protectwildlife #lonelyplanet

  • We weren’t lying when we said we have the largest lions in Africa. Our lionesses average 160kg, which is 40kg heavier than female lions recorded anywhere else on the continent. They are so robust due to our excellent lion management project, which ensures an ecological balance between predators and prey on the reserve. Careful management maintains a strong gene pool. 👑 📷 Photo: @jason_block1 . . . #regram #erindi #erindinamibia #lions #lioness #big5 #worldrecord #conservation #animalkingdom #africa #photography #nakedplanet #travel #safari #wildlife #animals #wilderness #natgeo #natgeowild #picoftheday #explore #travelgram #wildlifephotography #protectwildlife #lonelyplanet

  • It is no wonder that waterbuck camouflage well when their horns scoop up foliage, creating a great headdress 🌿🌼. Apart from the distinctive white ring on their rear, it would be otherwise difficult to spot them. It is incredible how our animals have adapted to their environment. They can eat in peace when they blend in with their surroundings, making it more challenging for the predator. 📷Photo:@breccn . . . #regram #erindi #erindinamibia #waterbuck #antelope #buck #camo #plainsgame #conservation #animalkingdom #africa #photography #nakedplanet #travel #safari #wildlife #animals #wilderness #natgeo #natgeowild #picoftheday #explore #travelgram #wildlifephotography #protectwildlife #lonelyplanet

  • A lot can be said by the stance of an African elephant. Their eyes and their body language show a great deal of emotion, especially when they feel discomfort. Our guides are excellent at recognizing the signs of unease and reassuring them with gentle encouragement. Fortunately, we have earned their respect and incidents are rare. They are in charge of their wilderness 💕🐘 📷Photo: @donalboyd . . . #regram #erindi #erindinamibia #elephant #emotion #big5 #elephants #gamedrive #conservation #animalkingdom #africa #photography #nakedplanet #travel #safari #wildlife #animals #wilderness #natgeo #natgeowild #picoftheday #explore #travelgram #wildlifephotography #protectwildlife

  • It’s an elephant parade at the Old Traders Lodge waterhole. They go marching “hup, two, three, four by the ranks of single file, over every jungle mile”.

  • Blurry lines for others, but not for the zebra. They have excellent eyesight 👀It is believed that they can see in color. This is helpful in the wild since their main predator is the lion, an animal known to be color blind. Zoologists believe that the zebra's pattern is a sort of camouflage that helps it hide from predators.
