Of these, the best known are the El-gonyi, from whom the name Elgon has been derived.
Elgon, with its elephants, was our goal, and in between were the black-maned lions that we hoped to meet.
In variety, the view from the summit of Elgon surpassed anything we had before seen.
If we were unable to get the big bulls on Elgon it might be necessary to make a special trip into Uganda for them.
Elgon was first visited in 1883 by Joseph Thomson, who brought to light the cave-dwellings on the southern face.
