Q. How do you feel today has gone in terms of achieving those aims?
A. "I am very impressed with how today has gone and feel it is the best start to any walk I have ever done. When I started walking in 2011 I only had a handful of people with me, today I believe I have interacted with over 1,000 people, 17 schools joined us and hundreds walked. The children's reactions and enjoyment was obvious and very delightful to see. People already believe in protecting and saving the elephants for our future."
Q. Dare I ask what is next once this walk is finished?
A. "Another walk of course. Next month I am walking in Kenya from Nanyuki to Nyahururu, a distance of 201km. Then in July I am going back to the USA to do an 800 mile walk across California. I have chosen America as I feel they need to know about the plight of the elephants in Kenya and to correct current misconceptions. For example, did you know a lot of people believe you can harvest elephant tusks like deer antlers, where they simply fall off at the end of a season? People just don't realize you have to kill the elephant to get the tusks. Also, I am planning to come to London, England later in the year to do my first walk there; I hope to see you."
