The dry season is taking hold here in Mkomazi. The landscape grows ever more grey, yellow and unforgiving and the wildlife scatters to the better-watered areas of Tsavo National Park in Kenya. We have not had the same return of the elephants to Mkomazi from Tsavo as in past years. This could either be due to the good rains that the Tsavo National Parks have enjoyed earlier in the year, or more ominously, it could be due to increased elephant poaching there. We will not be able to tell until after the next rainy season at the beginning of next year.
The orphaned elephant calf, Mr BRRRRR, is still doing well. He is firmly attached to his two keepers, Thomas and Zacharia, and has adapted well to his life at our camp. He is now eating a lot of browse which keeps him occupied for many hours in the day.
