What is the symbol of East Africa for you? For me it is the snowcapped Mt. Kilimanjaro, and in front herds of elephants, antelopes and other wildlife roaming between fever trees. You think this is a picture from the past? No, it is not, it still exists: in the Amboseli National Park, situated in the South of Kenya close to the Tanzanian border. The view onto Africa's highest mountain is rarely clear, but we are lucky. On our first morning we can marvel at the massif and later on at the abundant wildlife in a varied and fascinating landscape. We were especially delighted to see many herds of elephants, since they are seriously endangered due to the recent dramatic increase in poaching. Also there must have been spring in the air, but check out yourself the pictures below....
