Next Day
So far we've avoided being trampled or eaten by the wildlife, however, with regards to fishing, the fish are winning and we are thinning. I've lost ten hooks on tree stumps and at least that many more to tigerfish. I even broke a fishing pole trying to yank my hook from a snag. We're left with one pole and a few hooks between us and starvation...
.Take a bucket bath behind the tent but don't expect any privacy - the young elephants can be curious.
Hippos offer fishing advice but we can't trust them, they're vegetarians.
Door to door (tent to tent) elephant salesman.
The birds stare at us as we go fishing, especially the fish eagles. Each time a tigerfish snaps the line we can hear a fish eagle calling (laughing?).
