In Kruger National Park, you can’t get out of your vehicle when inside the park (for good reason!). Thankfully, many of the animals in the park can be seen very close to the road. This bull elephant got so close to our vehicle that I actually couldn’t take photos with my 150-500mm lens! He was too big!
