For a truly unforgettable experience, book an overnight excursion to Ithumba Camp in Tsavo East National Park, where the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust raises orphaned elephants and reintroduces them to the wild.
We will fly to Ithumba in the morning, arriving just in time for the daily mud bath. You can watch the keepers feed milk to the elephants and then watch them splash in the water. In the late afternoon, we will meet the young elephants again as they retire to their shelters.
We will spend the night at Ithumba Camp. The next morning at 5:30 am, you will be awoken with tea or coffee in your tent. Then we will drive to the stockades for the morning feeding. It often happens that orphans who have graduated from Ithumba will return to visit as adults, thus allowing for close interaction with wild elephants.
After lunch, we will fly back to Campi ya Kanzi, passing over the Tiva river and the wilderness of Tsavo. This is where Beryl Markham once flew when helping Bror Blixen on his hunting safaris.
