It all starts with the trunk.. #trunkupwines
Sana Sana is one of the more reserved members of our Nursery Herd, but her quiet demeanor belies a steely determination to survive. When she was just 10 months old, she became separated from her mum (we're not sure how or why) and was on her own for some time. After narrowly escaping an encounter with a hyena, she sought refuge at night by sleeping next to a Samburu tribesman's tent. When we were finally able to rescue her, she seemed relieved to at last be in safe hands. The other orphans at the Nursery immediately took a shine to her — this photo, taken in 2016, shows one of her first outings with them into the Nairobi National Park— and while she often keeps herself to herself, she's also the first to come running should she think that any of her friends are distressed.
