Many of the Masai Mara elephants leave when the migration comes through because they're not particularly fond of the thundering megaherd of wildebeest and zebra. After being in the Mara for about three days, we started seeing elephants. Then in the upcoming days we saw more and more and I was ecstatic. I love the big cats, but elephants are my all time favorite. Here's a photo of a family of elephants, one of the first groups of elephants we spotted.
