10 Days, 9 Nights

Dame Daphne Sheldrick documented her own life in her brilliant memoir Life, Love and Elephants.
In addition to being the first person ever to have successfully hand-reared newborn elephants, Dame Daphne’s sanctuary and elephant adoption program, a tribute to her beloved husband, David, has saved the lives of countless orphaned elephants and rhinos and sustained them until they could return to the wild in Tsavo National Park.

This vacation showcases Dame Sheldricks amazing work at the Davd Sheldrick Sanctuary with an adoption visit which is only open to those who have adopted an elephant or rhino (adoption included in package).  The safari includes game drives in Amboseli National Park, home to a rich elephant population, and where excellent views of Kilimanjaro can be seen. Next, you’ll travel to Ithumba Camp in Tsavo East National Park where most of the Sheldrick orphans come from and are eventually returned to, and where Daphne and David worked and fell in love.  At Ithumba you will see newly released ellies being cared for during their transition.  After the safari comes a welcome beach break in Mombasa where Dame Daphne’s family had their beach home, and where she and David Sheldrick spent their brief honeymoon.
