The Weekend in Black and White


My bag is packed and I am ready to go on my early morning flight to Nairobi. From there we plan to walk with the giants or better with elephants. Hoping to witness the collaring of elephants for monitoring them 24/7. Poaching has not yet been stopped. I can`t imagine a world without elephants roaming the plains.



Showing off!


Road - block.


The sheer vastness of the country is breathtakingly beautiful.

  10. These are great b&w elephant shots. They should have vast areas in which to roam with safety. I was horrified to see large ivory shops in Hong Kong back in the 1980s and 90s containing tons of the stuff.
