Majestic. Adorable. Formidable. Captivating. Intelligent. Compassionate. Protective. Funny. Magnificent.

These are only a few of the words that come to mind when I think of the elephant—one of my favorite animals on the planet. I mean, who doesn’t love elephants? If there’s someone out there who scowls when an elephant is mentioned in conversation, I hope I never meet them. They’re not worthy of attention.

As I prepare to return to Africa, I look forward to seeing these incredible creatures once again in the wild, honestly, I am giddy with anticipation.  In the meantime, I’ve put together a little tribute to these powerful pachyderms with images from my trips to Tanzania, Botswana and Kenya over the last few years.

I hope you enjoy.
