African Elephants seen in Masai Mara, Kenya


During the Masai Mara safari, we saw a lone elephant standing under a tree. It was like he had lost his way and got separated from the pack. The guide told us that elephants only move in a herd. But when an elephant gets very old and is about to die, he leaves the group to keep the entire herd from slowing down.

Seen in Masai Mara National Reserve, Kenya.
