THANK YOU FOR BEING THERE .. THANK YOU FOR REBALANCING NATURE..
The Ndoto mountains are incredibly steep mountains, and these Elephants chose to climb to the top!.. What an incredible sight…
…. 15 years ago there was disaster looming on these beautiful remote mountains in northern Kenya because the elephants were not there.. They had been completely wiped out by poachers in the 70s and 80s, and with their departure, little did every one think, was going to be a recipe for complete decimation of the valuable forests because of fires.. We were on safari over the holiday season, and for the first time since I have been walking the mountains the elephants are really settled and doing THEIR PART IN NATURE..
What happend was the bush on the flanks of this mountain became so incredibly thick due to the Elephants demise, so can you believe it, the people resorted to burning the bush, which spread like ‘wild fire’ up the steep sides and into the forests, and this was what was happening..
Theres only one animal that can deal with this thick bush and thats our elephant, they thrive and they clear it!! Heres a few paths we followed and could not stop saying thank you to the Elephants for coming back and SAVING THESE MOUNTAINS for every one!!
This path that is actually down on the Milgis Lugga, has now become a major highway and we have caught hundreds of beautiful pictures of Animals making use of the big animals work.. Heres our friends just keeping it open!!
All the rest of the residents using our Elephant path..
Communication with Mamouth
We are being pressured into allowing people to put collars on the elephants to follow there every step taken, I shiver at the idea myself!! SOOOO we actually are hoping we can do it a different way with our a crystal ball!!
HOW MANY ELEPHANTS USED TO LIVE IN NORTHERN KENYA??? i would love to know..
these rocks are so so beautiful and moving to me.. I could hug them!!
so the motto of this story is we must NOT medley with nature its dangerous and we will wipe our selves out by doing so.. the situation was so dire in the Ndotos, with every one just lighting fires willy nilly .. Water was drying up and People were crying!!
