Animal party

The Marula trees (Sclerocarya birrea) are from the Southern part of Africa and are also called Elephant tree or the Marriage Tree.
They produce very juicy fruits that contain large amounts of alcohol, being the most important ingredient for the Amarula cream liqueur. But not just for humans: due to the water shortage in the summertime the animals go to the trees as soon as the fruits are ripe and... they have a real party!
See the video - a French documentary about Africa:
