Elephants of Samburu
National Geographic had a nice article recently on the elephants of Samburu, Kenya. Samburu remains my favorite place in Africa of all the places I've seen there so far. I saw an elephant born there, and here is a photo of a few elephants in Samburu. Save the Elephants is a research group based in Samburu that does great work with the local people and the elephants. I was lucky enough to meet with their researchers, see their radio collars, and learn about their research on wildlife corridors last time I was in Samburu (May 2007). Tourism is down - it's a great time to go if you can swing it.
