The first of the images of my African adventure to flow from my heart to hand, this huge bull elephant was special in many ways. I was amazed at his size and thrilled to see that an elephant with tusks this huge still survived and has escaped the poachers. I also saw him on the very last day as we were leaving Ngorogoro. The Baobab trees are magnificent and an ecosystem unto themselves, sustaining so many other species. I felt these trees to be the lifeblood of Africa and a symbol of her grandeur and enduring legacy.
