These Giraffes looked a little bit out of place in the dry and almost treeless landscape

Close to Little Muck there is a small dam right next to the road and here we found a family group of elephants. As NetEk said, Mapungubwe's elephants are really chilled out.

The dam was probably built when the area was still farmed
