Sunset moonrise swimming

Pamushana | June 2017

This was the most beautiful sighting of the month for me – two elephant bulls swimming and playing in Nduna Dam, surrounded by an amphitheatre of sandstone cliffs and forest.

We left the vehicle, climbed the rocks that overlook the scene and sat there watching them for over an hour. The sunset threw soft warm light on to the rocks, and as the moon rose the scene was lit in pinks, mauves and purple hues.
