And the dry season continues...

Elephants are starting to get grumpy.  Although there is still plenty of delicious water in the Rufiji and just beneath the surface of the dry river beds, the elephants resent the food rationing that accompanies the end of the dry season.   Even the fig tree in camp, which has been supplying more food than a McDonald’s the last few months, has stopped fruiting.   The elephants seem to be taking their frustration out on the vegetation as they have yanked off branches, shorn off bark, and even toppled a few trees around camp.
