If there’s one thing that will never fail to make us smile, it’s footage of a baby elephant enjoying a mud bath!⁣

Thank you to our partners @sheldricktrust who, despite everything going on in the world at the moment, continue to put their heart and soul into the orphans in their care and their conservation efforts around Kenya. ⁣

Siangiki shows us how a one-minute wallow is done! This joyful girl brings a little light to everyone around her. Her absolute best friend is Olsekki, a fellow six-year-old who who was rescued around the same time as Siangiki, and graduated to Ithumba with her in 2016. However, Siangiki is always looking for new friends, and has recently decided to “adopt” Ambo as a sort of little brother. In the morning, she checks in on him to see if he had a good night, and then they spend the day browsing in each other’s company. Ambo can’t quite seem to believe his good fortune to have such a nice older friend!

We rescued Siangiki five years ago, after she was found alone in the Masai Mara. Today, she’s taking steps back towards a life in the wild at our Ithumba Reintegration Unit. To learn more about her, visit:
