found and the plight of elephants in that area.
Maralal, is the official administrative Headquarters of Samburuland and lies at the base of the forested Karisia Hills. These rise up from the Larogi Plateau northwest of the Samburu National Reserve, overlooking open plains and scattered bush country which becomes persistently more arid as one heads North to Baragoi and South Horr into the arid lava desert wastes of Lake Turkana itself. Classified as the Gateway to the inhospitable north, elephant herds still migrate between the Karisia Hills and the Mathews Range. Our orphan "Maralal" was rescued at a place called Ledero near Maralal, her mother forced to leave her after she fell down a well. she was rescued by KWS and kept at the Maralal KWS Station overnight before our rescue team could fly in the morning to get her.
