There are currently 30 orphans aged 3 to 7 years old at David Sheldrick’s Ithumba’s reintroduction camp. Since 2004, over 100 orphans have been released into the wild from this location. 70 of those are completely reintegrated into the wild and live amongst wild elephants. The others have formed orphan herds within the wild and 10 have had babies! It is a remarkable and unique experience to be able to walk amongst these gentle giants and hear about the incredible success stories of those now living in the wild.
