Wildlife photography of a bull African Elephant cooling at a water hole in Mashatu Bush Camp in Botswana

A massive bull African Elephant splashes gleefully in a watering hole at the Mashatu Bush Camp in a Botswana game preserve. With a body the size of a truck, overheating is a constant problem for African Elephants in the midday heat of the savannah. They seek shade or watering holes to cool, and their huge sail-like ears also help to dissipate heat.
