Echo Leading Part Of Her Family

Print Description

Echo was the quintessential matriarch.  Here she leads part of her family towards Ol Tukai Orok – The Place of the Dark Palms – where they will feed for most of the day.  During the day they would almost certainly have met up with the rest of the family whereupon there would have been an exuberant greeting ceremony.  Echo and her family are one of the most “emotional” and demonstrative of all the families in Amboseli and this is one of the reasons why they are such favourites with all of us who are lucky enough to spend long periods of time with them.  Echo died in May 2009.
