Look Out For Elephant Damage
One of the best parts of traveling in East Africa is how possible it is to just stumble upon an elephant. If you feel like being a bit more proactive, though, you can keep an eye out for clues. When elephants come through an area, for whatever reason – aggression, social displays, to expose the tasty roots – they tend to go a little crazy on the woody vegetation (they’ve actually transformed much of Amboseli National Park from woodland to grassland over the years). Look out for newly broken branches, munched-on acacia bark, and overturned trees, and odds are you’ll come across an elephant or ten fairly soon.
