The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust


On 23rd September 2011, guests at the Tarhi Tented Lodge in Tsavo East National Park awoke to a wild drama. A baby elephant had become trapped in a waterhole, its increasingly distressed mother trying desperately to extract the baby. After a time other members of the herd headed off, deterred by the increasing number of guests appearing nearby. The mother though held firm, unwilling to abandon her offspring.
