A unique opportunity has arisen for an extremely special and unique experience. You can be one of a small exclusive group of just 14 guests witnessing orphaned elephants being re-introduced by the orphanage to a wild herd in Kenya’s Tsavo National Park, hosted by Giles Clark who has filmed this very thing for the BBC.
This will take place over a 4 day trip for just 7 couples, from 3rd – 7th October staying in the wilderness at a private luxury camp called Ithumba which is owned by the David Sheldrick Elephant Charity, and can only be hired in its entirety for exclusive use. Their orphanage is in Nairobi and we will have the chance to visit the baby elephants in private on our first day in Kenya, Tuesday 3rd October.
At Ithumba a number of baby elephants from the orphanage will be corralled into a large open pen where they will be experiencing their first taste of being re-introduced to the wild. And here is the amazing and unique part – which is such a privilege to witness and be a part of: By the time we arrive, the babies will have been at Ithumba for a couple of days and in that time somehow the wild herd that they are destined to join will be aware of their arrival and members of the herd will have come to the corral.
