  • An amazing sanctuary for wildlife and late Dame Daphne Sheldrick built a wonderful home for orphaned animals and injured animals. Love that they get integrated back into the wild. They need all our support at DSWT.
  • So refreshing to see these orphaned elephants are being genuinely cared & loved after having exoeriened such a traumatic start in life❤ This Wildlife Trust is dedicated respectfully, to the elephants integrating them back into the wild to live the life the are meant to live. While not exploiting the elephants. This without a doubt has been the highlight and reason for my long travel. It was an extremely profound experience and emotional. I would highly recommend visiting and supporting the preservation, rehabilitation the elephants as we all deserve the right to live on this planet earth as we were intended.🐘🐘❤
