Death of one, Survival for many!!!
From Lerai Forest Heading to Ngoitoktok picnic site for lunch, there was a great sighting of an old dead Elephant which had broken its leg the day before!! It was heading to the Marsh area for soft grass and water but didn't make it.
Only almost 200 or 250 metres were left for him to get to the Marsh, it died, may be natural causes or age, no one is sure for the moment!!! Death of one, survival for many, After Lions, Hyenas, Jackals went away, because they were full, Vultures started Land!!!
We Counted 175 Vultures, Others were at other side[difficult to count], others inside the carcas, others were flying arround not yet landed, probably 400 of them.
