Orphan elephants

My last weekend of the recent 4-week work trip around Africa a friend and her sons took me to see orphan elephants at the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust.  They had recently sponsored the smallest of the elephants (though not the youngest.)

The public can view the elephants every day at 11am for one hour.  The orphans come into the main area to have their bottles.

The little guy that my friend’s sons sponsor was so cute.  He wasn’t always able to figure out forward and reverse – but he enjoyed attempting to play soccer.
