Hundreds of visitors have already taken part in the trail this weekend clocking up the miles to catch all 55 of the large Elmers plus the 11 smaller learning herds in and around Ipswich town centre.

Many families have begun to track down the specially designed elephants with some already having snapped close to if not all of the elephants after the first day.
