Not only was it fantastic to see this dusty arid ecosystem so lush, after the big rains, but there were so many new calves everywhere. In one herd alone, we counted over 20 baby elephants, under 3 months.

Elephants of Amboseli; one of my favorite reserves in Africa to photograph large herds of Elephants. I loved seeing how green, lush, and vibrant it was just after the raining season. I had not been at this time of year as I always go in the dry season, which also happens to be in the high season. What brought me there this year was the Turkana Festival and Wildlife Safari. It was awesome to be there in the low season, as virtually had the place to ourselves. Since there was so much grass, rather than getting out of the swamps, and racing across the dry savanas, the elephants would stay close long stretches, allowing us quality time to capture incredible images and watch their behavior.

After many long days in the bush, it is nice to relax in front of the waterhole and allow the animals to come to you. Photographing in style. - West Tsavo ‪#‎photography‬ ‪#‎WestTsavo‬
