Head Scout’s daily report
Reporting date: 25.04.2011
Although it has been raining heavily in many other parts of the Masai Mara game reserve, the areas bordering the reserve to the east are very dry due to lack of rain. The situation is the same in our conservancy. The few water points and pools are almost dead dry forcing the animals to share the remaining pools. Moreover, it was interesting watching the parchyderms making good use of such pools in the conservancy. The conservancy game scouts sighted a herd of 14 elepants having a mud bath at one of the pools. Owing to the dry weather and heat of the day, no one could blame the elephants for using their spare time to cool off and have fun as well.
