Our first game dri­ve start­ed at 6:30am and we were final­ly lucky to see the Kil­i­man­jaro for a short time. Unfor­tu­nate­ly with­out the desired ele­phants in front of it, but you can’t have everything:

The enor­mous moun­tain still ris­es 4,800 metres above the sur­round­ing plateau. To see this is incred­i­bly impres­sive. Unfor­tu­nate­ly, one hour lat­er it was already cov­ered by clouds again.

We once again found large herds of ele­phants, always with many small, very cute calves. One group was eat­ing a com­plete tree in an aban­doned camp.

The break­fast we took with us from camp was served on the hood of our Toy­ota Land­Cruis­er 4x4 Jeep, love­ly pre­pared by Eric:

Again and again we saw groups of ele­phants march­ing to the cen­tral swamp in the park.
