Water for Elephants

It is good to see how Botswana look after their animals.
On this particular day there was an interruption in the water supply to the town Nata. Not too far from there and to our surprise a large water tank truck arrived at a waterhole near the main road. It pumped water into the waterhole for the thirsty elephants (they need a steady supply of water and can each drink up to 160 litres a day).

“The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated.”
