In the U.S., airports sometimes have trouble with birds or rabbits gathering on runways. They have the same issues in the Serengeti national park in Tanzania – only larger.
I shot this photograph shortly before our departing flight was to arrive at the Lobo air strip in the Loliondo area. The elephants are right where the incoming planes touch down. Shortly before planes arrive, park officials show up to make sure the runways are clear. They had to chase this group away.
Notice how the big elephants surround the little one – they are very protective.
