Welcome to our African Wildlife Gallery and our collection of Wildlife Pictures.
The  Elephant Pictures  featured on this site were all  taken by Ernest Lopes, on  the  Greater Kruger National Park and the
Private Wildlife Reserves   around it.
Elephants are always associated with permanent water and abundant vegetation( an exception to this is the desert elephant from Namibia, who adapted to survive in the harsh conditions of the area). Because elephants do not have sweat glands, water plays an important roll in helping them cool down.
Elephants are very intelligent and highly social animals. They live in herds, made up of the matriarch (the oldest animal in the group), her female calves and the youngsters. The herd can comprise between 6 and 30 animals, after what they split to form new herds, always maintaining contact with each other at water holes and feeding spots.
