Check out Ahmed the elephant in “The Games End”
Kenya’s largest tusk elephant, central to the plot in The Games End. Ahmed is stuffed and stands in front of the Nairobi Museum in Kenya . Former President Kenyatta issued a degree to protect him when he was alive.
Have you ever seen an elephant with tusks like these? At one time this is how long elephants got to grow their tusks, but unfortunately because of poaching, we are losing what has been one of the greatest animals to walk on this world.
The Author has been to Africa himself many times and witnessed the tragedies, from which he got the inspiration needed to write the book. The book is about elephants in Africa, and it contains romance and adventure. The film story is a “Moby Dick” theme that is played out with a great elephant, Ahmed, that captures the adventure and romance of the time with its great cast of characters finding them-selves in the African bush working to save the game, but running into opposition every way they turn.
The Author William Gardner was one of the lucky few to encounter the legendary elephant, and that event inspired him to write the book.
