Okaukuejo resort

Location: Etosha, Namibia

The resort has a floodlit waterhole separated from humans by a wall twenty yards away. We sat here for nearly three hours in the evening and witnessed the amazing hierarchy in the animal world as they came down to water.

The big bull arrives.

First the lone elephant shoos off the rhinos.

Until the whole herd of thirty to forty are drinking.

Then more and more..

I've had my fill.

Playtime....

These were very wary, one drank, the others kept watch..

These came on their own......

And he comes back.

Then more..

The not so lucky giraffe! Apparently, it is very rare for such a large animal to be brought down. When it is, it must have been by a large pride of lions.

The lioness waits her turn.....whilst the jackals come next.
