Stunning picture of elephants standing in front of a rainbow

A herd of elephants was caught on camera exactly at the moment a rainbow appeared – creating a beautifully picturesque image.

The large mammals were hanging around a swamp at the Ambroseli National Park earlier this year when, after a shower, the impressive rainbow appeared.

Bank worker Kaizer Allu, 39, managed to capture the stunning images while on holiday in Nairobi, Kenya.

Kaizer said he has grown up going on safaris, a tradition he tries to keep with his own family now.

He said: “We were on an afternoon game drive with my wife, two sons and two daughters- it was till pretty cloudy and we were in the wet season.

“I am assuming that all the water from the mountain has some part to play in the creation of this natural all year swimming pool that the animals seem to love so much.

“We came across a huge herd of elephants, numbering probably more than 50, with mothers, quite a few calves and a couple of bulls.

“It started to drizzle a bit and there was a light shower-then the rain subsided to give way to the most beautiful of sceneries, there was the herd in all its splendour with the sun peeping through and  behind the herd was a rainbow as if by magic.

“Our mouths were left wide open in awe of this majestic sight. I have memories of this moment that no one would ever be able to put a price on.”
