    Re: Elephants dying in huge numbers ?

    Why would you say that?

    The fact of the matter is that today the elephants are leaving Chobe and wander across the farmland (swamped in high water) and end up on the Zambezi Islands close to...

    You are stating the obvious.

    Be vigilant with prospective travel plans.
