BOTSWANA - 2014 -2017: Lying in the water and watching the first herd approach Greg confessed that he had a lump in his throat, but soon enough the elephants were right in front of him, drinking directly out of the watering hole, Botswana, South Africa, 2014-2017.
A WILDLIFE photographer takes his passion to the next level by climbing into an elephants watering hole - close enough to touch the herd. Taken by Greg Du Toit, 39, in Botswanas Mashatu Game Reserve, the series of breathtaking images were shot between 2014 and 2017 and give a rare insight into the lives of elephants. The South African photographer wanted to produce eye-level photographs to get as close as possible to the huge but gentle animals.
