I was very surprised and happy to see so many elephants in Samburu. We saw many of them every single day. It was amazing to see them and to get so close to them in the wild.
Some of the elephants we saw, like the one in the featured photo, were tagged by Save The Elephants, which is based in Samburu. They conduct research on (hence the tagging), provide protection for, and provide education about elephants. They have a blog if you want follow what they are doing.
Here is an elephants-only video and a few photos of the majestic creatures.
