Yatta (who we rescued back in 1999) successfully returned to a life in the wild over a decade ago, but she still considers the humans and elephants at the DSWT to be a part of her family. Ever since she gave birth to Yoyo in October, she’s been visiting us regularly with her new baby in tow. During one of these recent social calls, our Keepers took the opportunity to remove some pesky ticks from little Yoyo while Yatta looked on, supremely unconcerned! It all comes down to the mutual respect, trust, and love that they share for each other.

"Excuse me," says Shaba, to keeper Leleruk. "I will take that bottle off your hands." Elephants have the highest number of olfactory receptor genes of any animal yet tested, and they know when their meals are about.

Photo by @amivitale. Shaba, the proxy matriarch of the Reteti Elephant Sanctuary (@r.e.s.c.u.e) herd teaches younger orphan Bawa how to forage and find the juiciest bits on the tree. Under the eye of caretakers, Shaba leads her small herd into the bush outside the sanctuary, stripping leaves, tasting bark, pushing down small trees, taking mud baths. Elephants are ecosystem “engineers” who feed on low brush and bulldoze small trees, promoting growth of grasses, which in turn attract bulk grazers like buffalo, endangered Grevy’s zebras, eland, and oryx, themselves prey for carnivores: lions, cheetahs, wild dogs, leopards.
@r.e.s.c.u.e, the first ever community owned and run elephant sanctuary in all of Africa, provides a home to orphaned elephants and is leading a transformation in the way Samburus relate to wild animals they once feared.

Shorty the giraffe loves to give kisses! Here he greets wildlife keeper Banki at Sarara Camp (@sararacamp) on the Namunyak Wildlife Conservancy in Northern Kenya. Shorty, or "Fupi" in Swahili, will go back to the wild once strong enough to survive on his own. He is a reticulated giraffe, which scientists have recently determined to be one of four distinct species of giraffe. Reticulated giraffe number about 8,000 individuals — as a separate species, it makes them some of the most endangered large mammals in the world as the population has dropped an estimated 70 percent in 15 years. The excellent wildlife keepers at Sarara and nearby Reteti Elephant Sanctuary (@r.e.s.c.u.e) are working hard to rescue and rehabilitate abandoned and orphaned animals.

Regranned from *dswt - In November 2011, a pint-sized calf marched into a village looking for company. When we rescued him then – only a week old at most, with umbilical cord still attached – we had no idea that he would become one of the most mischievous orphans we’ve ever raised! This #DSWTTransformationTuesday, swipe through to see the evolution of Kithaka over the past six years.

Photo 1: Kithaka was a character from day one. Here he is, two months old and already commandeering a Keeper’s umbrella as his own!

Photo 2: The older girls at the Nursery (like Naipoki, pictured here) doted on him and Kithaka quickly grew to appreciate an audience. He loved to regale everyone – two-footed and four – with his tricks, tossing his trunk in the air, standing on his head, and challenging the bigger orphans to pushing matches.

Photo 3: In May 2015, Kithaka graduated to our Ithumba Reintegration Unit alongside his best friends Barsilinga and Lemoyian. It wasn’t long before he was showboating his way around his new home and plotting new pranks, requiring the constant vigilance of the Keepers!

Photo 4: This fall, Kithaka took another step towards independence by going off his milk bottles. Any day now, he will decide it’s time to transition to a wild life! In the meantime, he continues to keep us on our toes and thoroughly entertained by his antics.

Your support makes it possible to give elephants like Kithaka a future. To foster him or another elephant in our care, click the link in our bio or visit:

Matriarch-in-the-making Tagwa loves all the babies, but Sattao has a special place in her heart. While out and about one morning, the Nursery herd came upon a stream. Sattao’s friends crossed to the other side with little fanfare but he was too scared to do the same, leaving the little bull very frustrated. Tagwa heard her charge’s cries and rushed over escort him through the water, offering gentle nudges of encouragement the entire way. When they got to the other side, Sattao gleefully rejoined his friends and Tagwa could be seen trumpeting with delight at the sight, just like a proud parent!

Cuando era niño, las avispas me picaban con una frecuencia despiadada, como consecuencia de mi curiosidad invasiva y mala suerte, supongo. En lo que a mí respecta, el mundo debía ser investigado, particularmente sus rincones dormidos y descuidados. Esta perspectiva me colocó en un rumbo de colisión con las avispas, cuya posición en el mundo ocupaba los mismos espacios que me sentía inclinado a interrumpir. Debido a esas muchas picaduras abrasadoras, desarrollé un miedo a las avispas y, bueno, a la mayoría de las criaturas voladoras, zumbantes y punzantes. Hoy, durante un descanso en un safari de juegos en Maasai Mara en Kenia, me encontré con esta magnífica y solitaria avispa construyendo su nido en la pared de un baño. Me puse de pie y lo vi funcionar durante varios minutos, fascinado por su diligencia y apariencia. Su soledad lo hizo menos amenazante y me maravilló la simple sofisticación de su actividad. En un lugar como Maasai Mara, a menudo nos cautivan los animales grandes y carismáticos que dominan las llanuras. Sin embargo, durante este momento de tranquilidad, me llevaron con mi vieja némesis, la avispa y el papel discreto que desempeña en el mundo.

Have you ever gone to a place knowing you would enjoy and ended up loving it more than you could have imagined? That was Nairobi for me. We arrived at 10:00 p.m. on New Year's eve and enjoyed a bottle of champagne in front of the fireplace at the brand new, and absolutely perfect, @onefortyeight_nairobi (thank you @ejafrica) We only had two nights there but it was enough to enjoy a little downtime on the property, shopping, a visit to the Giraffe Center and, the one thing I was looking forward to most: a visit to the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, which is a haven for elephant orphans and other animals. We even got to meet our foster ele, Jotto.

I've put the link to our review of OneFortyEight Nairobi in my bio and some more photos from Nairobi in my Stories.

Are you an animal lover?

Elephant calves are very tactile creatures and little displays of affection go a long way in making them feel comforted and loved.
In the wild, babies like Sattao would have his mother and nannies on hand to provide this, but at the Nursery, our Keepers and the ever-obliging mini-matriarchs (like Mbegu, pictured here) fill that void. While Mbegu is always happy to lend an ear, others aren’t quite ready to take that step. Mischievous Esampu is slowly but surely getting in touch with her maternal side, but she draws the line at that — whenever the little ones try to suckle her ear, she pushes them away and runs off in the opposite direction!

Photo by @amivitale. A dream team of five pastoralists known as Twiga Walinzi (“Giraffe Guards”) are using GPS data and a network of camera traps to catalogue individual giraffes across northern Kenya and better understand their threats and reactions to human development. Why? Because giraffe populations have crashed 40 percent since 1985. “When I was growing up, there were a lot of giraffes in this area. Now there aren’t many” says Symon Masiaine, leader of Twiga Walinzi. “We are gathering information that will help determine the most important strategies to reverse the decline of the giraffe population.” ✨🦒✨

Successful people maintain a positive focus in life no matter what is going on around them. They stay focused on their past successes rather than their past failures, and on the next action steps they need to take to get them closer to the fulfillment of their goals rather than all the other distractions that life presents to them.

Meru national park week: Home of the incredible story of the lioness, Elsa and George Adamson, Kora and Meru national parks have a strong history when it comes to saving lions. Something which is vital now more than ever. A land of magical beauty, this week we show what this area has to offer. This photo was captured when we came across 2 lionesses at 7am - as the sun was atill rising the moon, seen here, seemed hesitant to set creating a stunning scene. .

We want our kids to complete the program with the ability to be independent. We send them to vocational training programs when they finish school, so that they can transition from being assisted, to making a living. We work with our kids and their families to determine the training track that suits them best. Help us spread the education and hope for their future 📚

why should you listen to podcasts compared to radio?

part 4/5

Better way to pass time than listening to music

Podcasts should be your go-to for car rides.Also, spending long stretches of time listening to something interesting that will teach you something is better than being alone with your thoughts.
