Tall Grass
The Elaphant Grass is aptly named,
as it grows as tall as the male elephant.

The flat-bottomed paddle steamers plied the Nile
often so loaded that any sort of wave would
sink them -as it often did.

Alan and Milton bringing home a super large white crocodile
that had been dragging cattle and even fishermen into the river.

Elephant compared to a Baobab tree.

In her Memoirs, Phyllis mentions some of the snakes.
These are some of the ones we often encountered.
