The David Sheldrick Elephant Sanctuary, where you will meet your adopted baby elephant or rhino, was started by the late Dame Daphne Sheldrick in honor of her conservationist husband, David. To learn more about this amazing couple, please read Love, Life and Elephants, an African Love Story by Daphne Sheldrick.

 

The Kazuri Beads enterprise was started by the late Lady Susan Wood who wanted to create employment for local single mothers so that they could support their families. The bead 'factory' now creates quality beads and beaded products that are sold internationally at stores such as Harrods of London.

On arrival at Voi, you will be met by your safari guide and transferred to your accommodation for tonight, Salt Lick Lodge in Tsavo East National Park. Inside Tsavo East National Park, the Athi and Tsavo rivers converge to form the Galana River. Most of the park consists of semi-arid grasslands and savanna. It is considered one of the world's biodiversity strongholds, and its popularity is mostly due to the vast amounts of diverse wildlife that can be seen, including the famous 'big five' consisting of lionblack rhinocape buffalo, elephant and leopard. The park is also home to a great variety of bird life such as the black kitecrowned cranelovebird and the sacred ibis.  Sarova Salt Lick Game Lodge is among the World's Most Photographed Lodges.
