An orphan calf was first spotted from the air alone late evening of the 4th of July and her position report to KWS and DSWT’s chief pilot. It was too late in the day to do anything a search was coordinated for the following morning On Saturday the 5th Nick Trent flew to help provide aerial support for the Voi elephant keepers who were searching the area where she was spotted that previous evening. Despite everyone’s best efforts she was not sighted again. They continued to comb the area the following day still without luck. Then by chance clients flying into Satao Camp on Monday the 7th of July sighted the calf from the air, still alone and clearly weak and thin and alerted the camp reception staff who immediately called Joseph Sauni who heads the DSWT Voi Relocation Unit. The Voi Keepers were able to find her and rescue her.
