Adopt an Elephant

Whenever I go on safari there is always a small part of me that wishes that I could bring something home. A small souvenir. However, the reality is that my 2 'pavement special' cats from Cape Town is about as wild as it can get! 

You cannot feed an elephant on my astroturf even though I could flog the manure to the local garden centre...

But visit Nairobi, and specifically the Sheldrick Wildlife Trust in the Nairobi National Park, and it is possible to foster an elephant. A donation of $50 allows you to visit the trust after closing time when the elephants are being put to bed, and to meet the keepers. A more dedicated bunch of individuals, you will struggle to meet. They still work to the 'formula' of adoption that was started by Dame Daphne Sheldrick. 

Your $50 donation gets you a years worth of emails updating you on the work that the trust is doing as well as specific updates on your little elephant and their progress. Read more about what to do in Nairobi and my visit to the Sheldrick Wildlife Trust : 48 hours in Nairobi
