While exploring Arusha National Park, Tanzania, the driver and i came upon a parade of elephants. Most were calmly crossing the road , suddenly this mother with calf appeared, trumpeting and charged the Land Cruiser. We were stationary, in that instant her eyes drilled through us. There was no question we were not to move. A moment in time that will not be forgotten

Location: Arusha National Park, Tanzania
