Photo by @amivitale | A herd of wild elephants travel through the shrubby lands of Namunyak Wildlife Conservancy in northern Kenya. Here, you can see endangered Grevy's zebra, leopards, reticulated giraffes, wild dogs, kudu and elephants in ever increasing numbers. This place used to be dangerous with warring tribes and the landscape looked very different. Elephants had been all but eliminated in the area. Today, however, it is thriving.
Outside of the Maasai Mara National Reserve, Namunyak contains higher populations of large mammals than any other landscape (protected or unprotected) in Kenya — including the second-largest elephant population in the country, boasting more than 6,300 individuals. It's incredible to see how resilient nature is if we give it a chance.
