Seeing these elephants cross the road in northern Kenya was sheer serendipity. The volunteer group I was with was returning back from the school we were working on back to our camp. We had been joking around with our driver that he should help us find various forms of African wildlife, including elephants. He must have been an elephant whisperer for he spotted these elephants out in the distance as we drove down the road. He stopped and warned us that we should stay in the truck as to not startle them. But as they made their way across, we all got out to get better pictures of them. They crossed quietly but steadily, perhaps in search of food.
It was a wonderful moment that I won’t forget anytime soon.
