When you watch a large bull elephant under a fruiting Marula tree, patiently sniffing around on the ground for ripe tasty marulas, delicately picking them up one at a time before blowing them into his mouth, then starting all over again ..... you have to wonder when he gets the time to eat the rest of the 200kg plus of vegetation he needs to consume in a day?
By late summer the White Storks are also congregating in large flocks on these open grassy areas. Feeding up before migrating back for the northern hemisphere summer. (You can see them in the background of the photo above).
(Don't you just love their ears?!)
And for the Wild Dog who need to constantly keep a watch out for larger predators (and potential prey of course) the shady road side under a nice large African Weeping Wattle offers the best position during the heat of the day. (despite the traffic!)
