In these stunning photos, a ghostly white elephant emerges from a desert oasis and chases a herd of springbok.
Due to the abundance of clay in the watering hole near Etosha National Park, Namibia, the pachyderm’s color was changed from his standard grey shade to a pale hue.
The enormous male elephant drenched the antelope as it playfully charged them at the Nebrowni watering hole in Botswana’s northwest game reserve.
Anja Denker, a 51-year-old visual artist and wildlife photographer from Windhoek, Namibia, took these photos when she visited the game reserve.
She was providing a tour when she captured the images of the creature, which were delicately covered in white clay.
“While the elephant was splashing about in the water, flinging mud around and drenching a few unsuspecting springboks, sending them scattering,” said Katie Denker.
He also liked splashing the water around with his feet and climbing out of his favorite huge bathtub.
”I adore seeing his joyful exuberance in its natural environment; it appears like he was almost having fun drenching the antelope as he sprayed all around.’
The images were taken in Etosha, one of the world’s best wildlife locations.
It is a popular destination for wildlife photographers, and it is one of the most popular parks for film crews and tourists seeking an authentic safari experience.
Visitors should be cautious and avoid getting out of their cars unless they are in enclosed camping areas.
The plethora of predators in the region makes it extremely hazardous, and some are well camouflaged to their surroundings.
The dry season in Etosha is highly significant, particularly during the period from September to October, when the desert oasis is at its most lush and vibrant.
During the scorching heat, you can find popular safari animals such as elephants, zebras, lions, antelopes, and giraffes there.
