Our summer season of 2015/16 was a dry one, allover the country. At the start of the 2016/17 summer in October, we visited the Kruger National Park; where the signs of drought were quite visble and stark at times.
Here is a typical landscape. The foreground shows the signs of the drought. Normally, there would be tall grass, here. The faraway hillside show some signs of the first rains we had in this summer. Also it could be a different soil type or underground water may be close by.
Some animals like impala, warthog, giraffe, elephants and carnivores show good health and little impact of the drought. Others, like hippo's died in numbers.
