Why can we never get enough of ELEPHANTS?
WHY?From the Maasai Mara to Lake Nakuru to the outskirts of Nairobi, from Amboseli to Lake Manyara to the Serengeti, from the Ngorongoro Crater to Tarangire (among the Baobabs), we could never get enough of ELEPHANTS!
Maybe it's because of the intelligence they emanate. Or the absolute quietness of their walk as they pad through the grasslands and forests.
The beauty of their massive ears and incredible trunks?
The fact that they show obvious affection for each other and even grieve at elephant grave sites?
Or just their tremendous size and shape standing out against the most beautiful landscapes in the world.
Hmm, or as you'll see if you zoom in on some of these pics, maybe it just made Brad and I happier about the appearance of our own skins.
All we know is that we want to go back again some day to revisit these gentle giants that helped us to appreciate just how truly magnificent life on this planet can be.
