Ndomot's rescuers visit him in the Nursery

It was a special day when on the 21st of February 2005 the very same Samburu Warriors who rescued a tiny distraught elephant on 26th November 2003, wedged deep in a well dug by tribesmen in a dry Northern sand lugga, were able to spend two days with the now fat and boisterous Ndomot

It was a special day when on the 21st of February 2005 the very same Samburu Warriors who rescued a tiny distraught elephant on 26th November 2003, wedged deep in a well dug by tribesmen in a dry Northern sand lugga, were able to spend two days with the now fat and boisterous Ndomot.

The Trust funded their trip in an effort to ensure that they were able to spend time with the orphans and their Keepers, and have some first hand experience of the Orphan’s project. Their daily rhythm of life is one with their cattle, and living close to nature, so nurturing baby elephants came quite naturally to them. They couldn’t wait to share with the community their experience at The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust.
