There’s a reason the Addo Elephant Park is one of the best places to see elephants when traveling in South Africa. Once prolific in the region, their numbers got dangerously low when, in 1931, the park opened. Poaching of the smaller game is still an issue. But, the park is carefully managed to ensure these guys survive…and thrive. Next door at an independent lodge, we had the chance to spend a morning doing an elephant ride. As a result of being used to human contact, I was able to get my lens up close to take this week’s Suh-Weet Shot of this elephant eating.
