Tourism Update’s Pic of the Week goes to Jeni Smithies, Managing Director of Kakuli Safaris. The photo was taken while guiding guests through Addo Elephant National Park in the Eastern Cape, South Africa, on a full-day safari.

“It is extremely rare to find an elephant with the Alexandria Dune field and Indian Ocean in the background, but even more so, to find the rare ‘lesser-spotted five-legged elephant’,” says Smithies.

More pictures can be found Kakuli Safaris website.
