Description

In the middle of the day a large group of elephants came down to drink on the opposite side of the Shire River.
Apparently another group of birders who were staying at Mvuu were birding on that side of the river and had to come back across to camp because of all these guys.

Description from Wikipedia

The Proboscidea (from the Greek προβοσκίς and the Latin proboscis) are a taxonomic order containing one living family, Elephantidae, and several extinct families. This order, first described by J. Illiger in 1811, encompasses the trunked mammals. Later proboscideans are distinguished by tusks and long, muscular trunks; these features are less developed or absent in early proboscideans.
