Elephants While driving through Tsavo National Park in Kenya last year, I saw an elephant herd emerging from a watering hole. I couldn’t resist this shot of a younger elephant framed by the body of one of its’ older relatives. The family was covered with red mud – characteristic of Tsavo elephants. Tsavo East is known for it’s large elephant herds, however these numbers have declined in recent years due the demand for ivory. Unfortunately Satao, the oldest and largest elephant living in Tsavo – and in Kenya for that matter – was killed earlier this year with a poison arrow.
