Several observed along the river
Obscured view. Two elephants munching, 10-40 meters off of river edge. We were in a motorized boat, so they heard our approach, but did not flee -- a good sign of little to modest poaching pressure. This a regular boat route for tourists. We had stopped to see dragonflies (of course!), but the guide found them after we had turned off the motor.
Human-elephant conflict (HEC) in action. Three elephants eating manioc, two visible.
Dung in riverbed under bridge
