Setombe emphasized her authority as the herd grew by making thunderous sounds with her feet, encouraging the others to follow suit. The wildlife reserve echoed with resounding roars and stomps.

Over time, the young elephants grew tired of the game and became captivated by the nearby sand mounds, displaying the typical easily-distracted nature of youth. Meanwhile, the elephant herd congregated, relishing each other’s company.
