Most Recent Keeper's Diary Entry: (view all the latest entries for TSAVO)
12/31/2016 - Early before dawn Kauro, Naseku and Tusuja were on their way to the Ithumba Relocation Unit where they were to join their friends Oltaiyoni, Roi and Kamok who were move just a few days before. Kauro and Naseku were loaded without trouble but Tusuja, who up until that moment had never got in the lorry, proved more difficult and he stood far away from the lorry, watching Naseku and Kauro drink their delicious milk bottles. Because time was of the essence and he had always proved difficult, the keepers had no other option but to steer him with blankets onto the lorry until he was safely inside, and then once he was he was fine! Because they had suspected he would prove difficult the keepers had started loading earlier than before, and actually the lorry was away in record time, off down the Mombasa road towards Tsavo. We wish them all the best for their transition back to the wild and hope they live a full and successful life!
