As we celebrate mothers this month, we focus on the heartening stories of reuniting elephant families in Kenya.

While our organization is renowned for caring for orphaned elephants, our primary mission is to preserve the natural harmony of elephant families, fostering the idyllic world envisioned by many.

The journey of caring for a baby elephant begins long before their first steps on Earth. Remarkably, the gestation period for elephants lasts 22 months, during which mothers navigate the challenges of the wild while nurturing their unborn babies.

Once born, the familial support continues for months, years, and even decades, showcasing elephants’ lifelong commitment to family bonds.

Our team observed a distressing situation in a recent nighttime encounter at Ithumba. A newborn calf had accidentally trapped itself in a water trough, surrounded by a concerned herd.

Despite their efforts, the calf remained stuck. This incident is just one among many where unforeseen circumstances challenge the harmony of elephant families.

Christmas Eve holds a remarkable memory of rescuing a baby elephant entangled in a snare, fiercely guarded by its protective mother.

Despite the challenges, witnessing the calf reunite with its herd was a heartwarming Christmas gift.

Similar stories of rescue and reunion echo throughout Kenya, underscoring the persistent threats elephant families face.

A recent incident near the Arruba Lodge saw a young elephant trapped in mud, requiring the intervention of the Tsavo Mobile Vet Unit.

With dedication and teamwork, the calf was successfully rescued, emphasizing the unwavering commitment of elephant mothers to their young.
