Elephants enjoy the rain – Maasai Mara 2022

Elephants enjoy the rain. After a prolonged dry spell in Kenya’s Maasai Mara the animals all welcomed the downpour that we experienced. This was particularly true for the elephants. They enjoyed drinking from the puddles and taking a well earned mud bath – mud, mud glorious mud! The mud spattered hides along with a good soaking with rain water gave them a strange appearance. So very different from the elephants we had seen earlier when everywhere was bone dry. Despite the downpour, it was a delight to watch Elephants enjoy the rain.
