I am saddened to learn of the death of one of the greatest beings that ever walked the wild spaces of Kenya. Echo was queen of the matriarchs, so majestic and strong. I was privileged to see her in the mid 80’s on a camping trip to Amboseli. She started my love affair with elephants.

RIP. Respect.


  1. I also have a love affair with 'Loxodanta Afrikana' - hope I spelled that correctly. Thinks they are just the most majestic animals...

  2. Hey Billy,

    More needs to be done to protect our parks, it would be a disaster to lose these fellows. Thanks for your comments.xx

  3. Finally got to watch some, had to postpone the rest for another time, when I'm feeling less blue...I guess Justice Apondi dealt another blow today...but thanks for the post. I will come back to it.

  4. Hi Mama Shujaa,

    I know the feeling I didn't have the appetite for many things after that. x


Hey you, leave a comment but don't just be an asshole about it - try to be decent. That said you are welcome to heap abuse or ridicule if it makes you feel better. However in order to get published it must not be homophobic, racist or sexist. OK?
