Palm trees growing near the shoreline of a lagoon in the dry season. This is probably either Lake Moni or nearby, in the area where Buxton carried out four months fieldwork among the Köbora. This group, along with the Tsera, are generally known as riverine Mandari, although they are somewhat distinct from the Western Mandari among whom Buxton mainly worked.

Other Information:
In Chiefs and Strangers (Oxford, Clarendon Press 1963) Jean Buxton notes (page 3, 138) that 'River-dwelling 'Mandari' live south of the Aliab and Bor Dinka, on the west and east banks of the Nile, along a narrow strip of country behind the flood-line...After spending February and March for two years running among the Köbora on the Nile, who have large expanses of open dry-season grazing, plentiful Nile water, and big lagoons surrounded with lush grass and filled with fish and other edible aquatic animals, I was greatly struck by the dry and barren conditions of Mandari country."
