Today we’d like you to meet Faith! Faith is in Grade one at De Bridge school! She loves playing with her friends at recess. Although she may seem shy at first, Faith is so much fun to be around and spreads joy wherever she goes. Click the link in our bio to learn more about how to support children like Faith!

Flora Mumbi's father didn't believe that educating girls was important, so she never had a chance to attend school. "He claimed that educated women became 'headstrong' and
acquired bad habits," she says.

But Flora never gave up her dream to be literate. Now in her late 70s, she is finally learning how to read and write. She was one of the 318 students that
attended our free Adult Literacy classes last year. Alongside teaching basic literacy, we also use this platform to extend knowledge on conservation, preservation of natural resources and more.

For pastoralists like the , more grass means more food for their cattle—one reason indigenous communities have begun relating to elephants, animals long feared, in a new way. The loss of elephants has a ripple effect on other animals and the people co existing with them. Elephants are the ecosystem’s “engineers” who feed on low brush and bulldoze small trees, promoting growth of grasses, which in turn attract bulk grazers like buffalo, endangered Grevy’s zebras, eland, and oryx, themselves prey for carnivores: lions, cheetahs, wild dogs, leopards.

The Samburu are the force behind Reteti Elephant Sanctuary (@r.e.s.c.u.e), the first ever community-owned and run elephant sanctuary in Africa. We provides a safe place for injured elephants to heal and later, be returned back to the wild. You can support us and the people who protect wildlife. Make a $10 contribution in support of Reteti for a chance to win a trip to Kenya, see Dave Matthews in concert, take home a @rockbridgeguitar that features a custom inlay of an elephant hand-drawn by Dave and receive a @nikonusa D7500 18-300mm VR Lens Kit with @prizeo (Link in profile). Not only will you be helping care for orphaned baby elephants and strengthening community ties, you’ll also have a chance to win a life-changing trip to see the sanctuary in person. The first $10,000 in funds raised will be generously matched by Elephant Gems (@elephantgems). Reteti operates in partnership with Conservation International (@conservationorg) who provide critical operational support and work to scale the Reteti community-centered model to create even bigger, lasting impacts worldwide.

🌸 Small Things that make me happy 🌸

🌼Treating myself with fresh flowers every week. 🌼 Sunday Brunches.

Repost from @r.e.s.c.u.e
・・・
The Reteti Elephant Sanctuary (@r.e.s.c.u.e) is the story about how warriors who once feared elephants have become their protectors. All men working at Reteti were at some point warriors or are currently warriors, It’s a tribal rite of passage that every young man becomes a warrior.

What’s happening here at Reteti, without fanfare, is nothing less than the beginnings of a transformation in the way Samburus relate to wild animals they have long feared. This oasis where orphans grow up, learning to be wild so that one day they can rejoin their herds, is as much about the people as it is about elephants.
You can be a part of Reteti and join us in protecting wildlife. You might even win a trip to see us. For $10 contribution in support of Reteti, you will be entered for a chance to win a trip here, another trip to see Dave Matthews in concert and take home a @rockbridgeguitar that features a custom inlay of an elephant hand-drawn by Dave and receive a @nikonusa D7500 18-300mm VR Lens Kit with @prizeo (Link in profile). Not only will you be helping care for orphaned baby elephants and strengthening community ties, you’ll also have a chance to win a life-changing trip to see the sanctuary in person. The first $10,000 in funds raised will be generously matched by Elephant Gems (@elephantgems).

Third part: Because time was limited we booked a surprise trip to the Maasai Mara by small airplane. Only 45 minutes flying instead of 6 hours driving on a very bumpy road. We just had one night to spend but it was amazing! Great weather, saw 3 types of cats, lots of elephants, few rhinos, beautiful sunset and a lovely breakfast at the hippo pool! .

A dik dik's elongated snout is not only adorable, it works to keep the body cool. The muscles in their snout help with circulation and airflow of the blood leading to cooler internal temperatures 🇰🇪 #Sasaab #DiscovertheSafariCollection #Kenya #WhyILoveKenya #safari #luxurytravel

Day 4. Today I'm on a roll 😅😅😅
(swipe 👉 👉👉👉👉👉👉👉👉👉)
This day we had to make the journey from Lake Michaelson to the final camp called the Meru bandas. Lake michaelson is absolutely breathtaking ♥️ it's framed by a 300m temple to one side another cliff on the other edge. This stunning lake is in gorges valley at the head of Nithi river. Most people fly here for picnics,and proposals 😅😅😅. We also saw helicopter remains amongst the cliffs, sadly some don't make it alive due to the thick fog that engulfs the valley. Our hike was a SHARP ascend along the cliff. So sharp you could easily fall back if you looked down 😅 it was sad to say goodbye to the lake. We walked for HOURS.. To be honest after such a climax during summit, and the lake, I was dooone!! Hahahaha the walk was so long 😅😅😅😅 and then it rained, and everything was soaked despite having proper rain gear. My knees we're angry at me after the previous day's long descend 😩 all I wanted was a long shower and sleep. After being properly rained on it seized long enough for us to have a hot tea and lunch stop over. This was the followed by another looooong walk to Meru bandas, I was BEAT!!! So it was a wonderful surprise to find the teammates who'd arrived earlier come out and we daaanced and celebrated the feat.. What followed was a loooooooooooooong hot shower, and sat by the fire to get some warm. After a celebratory dinner, some members stayed up late and danced/celebrated. That night I slept like a baby!!!!!! I discovered a new found respect for hot showers and warm beds yo!! #wafchronicles

Three cheetahs relaxing in the sunshine at Tsavo East NP. It's not often you get to see these cats here because of the scrappy bushes and vast expanse of the park.

A few days ago I told this story of a male lion who just couldn’t bear the thought of sharing a zebra with his kids. Here’s a shot of him trying to drag it away for himself. You have to admire the kids’ tenacity. #gregdanfordphotography #nikon #nikon100 #nikonusa #nikonnofilter #nikond810 #richardscamp #safariexperts #maranorthconservancy #africanamazing #whyilovekenya #wildkenya #lion #ig_africa #ig_kenya

About 1,200 elephants of Amboseli National park in Kenya include 58 families and close to 300 independent adult males. Each individual has been named, numbered, or coded and can be recognized individually. This degree of recognition makes the Amboseli elephants the best-known free-ranging population in the world. It's a fantastic feeling to watch their calm an powerful move around the place. Incredible Amboseli 2/7  #amboseli #amboselinationalpark #africanelephant #elefants #igkenya #kenyasafari #magicalkenya #whyilovekenya #kenyawildlife #discoverkenya #kenyatrip #kenyatravel #instakenya #kenyaexperience #kentagram #visitkenya #lovekenya #kenyatourism #africansafari #discoverafrica #travelafrica #instaafrica #thesanetravel #panasoniclumix #lumix #femaletravelbloggers
