This post is about a spectacular sighting that we had of an African Elephant in Maasai Mara. One of our morning game drives in the Park started with the intention of first checking if the Leopard we saw the previous evening was still around or not. We drove non-stop till we reached the tree, but alas, the Leopard was nowhere around. While we were contemplating our next steps, we saw an African Elephant walking on the exact tracks that we were parked on. He saw us only when he got closer, but continued approaching us cautiously. It was a spectacular experience watching this Elephant walk slowly by us. Finally we had to back off a bit, to let him pass through peacefully.
