Welcome to Africa. There are many thousands of elephants on this continent. Most are in the wild, or in sanctuaries. We are hunting the ones that we can visit.

Now we drive down to Kenya. Kenya is famous for its two great national parks ... Amboseli and Tsavo ... both of which have been centers of elephant research for many years.
The banner design for Kenya shows the famous Mount Kilimanjaro. The mountain is not in Kenya but in neighboring Tanzania just across the border. It looms large over Amboseli Park and is the background for many films and videos about African elephants.
