A dry scene set in Kruger NP in October with the opening rains looming in the background. A family herd of elephants have been disturbed by perhaps a pride of lion lying in shade beside a waterhole and as the females and their young run off the big tusked male turns towards the danger to carry out a determined full charge attack. This bull is one of the many large tusked elephants that can be seen in Kruger due to their protection from significant poaching over many years. The bull is in musth which is denoted by the discharging temporal gland and urine stains on the sheath and back legs and is the reason that he has joined this female herd in search of females in oestrous.
