  1. The Independent Big Boy's Interaction with the Voi Keeper Dependent Juniors - 2/15/2011

    Even when watching wild elephant herds, we have always been amazed at how tolerant and gentle the Bulls are with the young – for instance at the dry watercourse of the Tiva sand river in Northern Tsavo East National Park where the elephants dig in the sand to expose sand filtered sub surface water to drink, and where competition during the dry season is fierce.

  1. Solango comes home for help - 2/6/2011

    During a routine patrol on the 28th January, the Keepers came across Solango, escorted by Burra, struggling desperately trying to make his way back home to the stockades on three legs, unable to put any weight on his right back leg,   Quite obviously he knew he needed the assistance of his erstwhile human family, still based at the Voi Stockades steering another batch of growing Ex Nairobi Nursery Orphans into adulthood and ultimately back where they belong -  amongst their wild kin of Tsavo East National Park.

  1. Baby Wasin's death - 1/10/2011

    We win some, and we loose some!   Over the years we have accepted the hard way that  baby elephants can be fine one day, and dead the next and the sudden and unexpected death of precious baby “Wasin” on the morning of 8th January 2011 was a painful reminder of just that!  

    Wasin had never been a robust baby, and maybe this was because she was so young when she came in she may have only had a little of her mother's colostrum,  we will never know, but she never really thrived. (read more)
