Camera Equipment: The photograph was taken with a Canon EOS 300D (Digital Rebel) and Canon EOS 100-400mm IS zoom lens. Exposure: 1/80 sec at F5; ISO: 1600; Lens focal length: 210mm.

Location: Chobe National Park, the second largest park in Botswana, covers 10,566 km2. It extends from the Chobe and Linyanti rivers in the north, down to Moremi Game Reserve in the south.

This massive park has one of the greatest concentrations of game on the African continent, including the world's largest elephant population, estimated to be around 120,000.

A highlight of any safari to Chobe is definitely a sunset cruise down the Chobe River, watching huge herds of elephants and other game congregate along the water's edge as the setting sun bathes the river and surrounding bush in a luminous, golden glow.
