Conservation Experience on Safari in Kenya

October 2023
Donation to David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust

Wild Wonderful World traveler Margherita is a loyal supporter of conservation initiatives across Africa. When she told Michelle she wanted to visit Kenya, we included a private tour and visit to the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust in her safari itinerary. The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust (DSWT) is an orphan elephant rescue and wildlife rehabilitation centre in Kenya, operating several programmes geared towards rescue, rehabilitation and release of keystone species. We were able to secure a private tour of the orphanage during this safari, which enabled us to ask questions about the rehabilitation process and better understand how they release orphaned elephants back into the wild.

Best known for their work with orphaned elephants, the DSWT also operations aerial, anti-poaching and mobile veterinary units to safeguard the natural environment and providing immediate assistance to wild animals in need. The orphans’ project is also able to rescue and rehabilitate orphaned baby rhino and other wild species across Kenya, so that they might enjoy a life back in the wild when grown. The organisation employs a holistic approach, working alongside the Kenya Wildlife Service, the Kenya Forest Service and local communities living alongside wildlife, and securing irreplaceable wilderness areas with their Saving Habitat initiative.

Contact us if you would like to include a private visit of the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust in your Kenyan safari.
