This female calf was first sighted by the Trust Pilot on the 3rd August 2013 whilst flying over the Mudanda area of Tsavo East National Park on a routine aerial recce mission. The calf was alone in the Mbololo watercourse desperately searching for water in a dry sandy lugga. (The carcass of a female elephant that could have been the mother had been spotted near Mudanda Rock a week ago by KWS.)
