Kenya is truly the home of wild life magic that has for centuries now attracted so many visitors to the country.
Its reported incredible pictures have captured the rare ‘elephant queen’ in Kenya.
Towering high above the Kenyan landscape, this female elephant is huge, her long tusks curving right down to the ground.Known as a “big tusker” she’s a rare and extraordinary sight — it’s estimated that fewer than 30 of these animals still exist in Africa.
British photographer Will Burrard Lucas captured a series of black-and-white photographs of this animal — who he calls the Elephant Queen — roaming in the natural landscape around Kenya’s Tsavo National Park.
He took the images in partnership with the Tsavo Trust, a local not-for-profit group, over a few visits in the hope of raising awareness about the animals.”
It was just incredible,” Burrard-Lucas told travel reporters. “Especially in this day and age where these elephants with long tusks are so rare.”
“I hope people are inspired to care about the natural world and, if they want to, to support organizations like the Tsavo Trust who are working so well to keep these animals protected.”
