The Mahale truce continues….

17 October 2011

The inter-regnum continues at Mahale with no outright successor to Pimu. Yesterday the guests saw Primus grooming Alofu and the gesture was reciprocated by Alofu. This is an interesting development as it's the first time these two potential alpha males have been seen together with the rest of the group.

The guides tell us that as they were grooming each other, there was no aggressive intent so still we have no idea who is in charge. The soap opera in the Mahale mountains continues....
