Mighty Elephant Bull
In what has so far been one of the very few elephant sightings we have had in Kenya's Mara North Conservancy, on our first afternoon drive during this trip, we encountered two majestic elephant bulls.
Francis positioned the vehicle so that the elephant was heading straight towards us. He kept walking, and we snapped away furiously as his imposing presence dominated our viewfinders.
Once he got close to our vehicle, he veered left and walked in front of us at a distance of only one or two metres.
This big tusker is a magnificent, healthy elephant who has the Mara plains at his disposal.
