Each day, herds of African elephants swim across the deep channels of the Chobe River in Botswana to feed on the grassy islands. En-route, they cavort and play and swim deep with just the tips of their trunks sticking above the water and acting as snorkels. When viewing their close family cohesion, one can only marvel at these magnificent animals that in no way deserve to be slaughtered for their ivory!
