This remarkable sanctuary holds a special mission: to rehabilitate orphaned and abandoned elephant calves, facilitating their successful reintroduction into the wild herds of Northern Kenya.

Part of a larger movement gaining momentum in the region, the sanctuary champions conservation-oriented approaches while fostering new economies and enhancing livelihoods within the community.

The separation of young elephants from their families often arises from factors like drought, human-made wells, human-animal conflict, and natural mortality. In response to community needs, the Sanctuary was established to address these challenges.

Situated east of Samburu National Park and north of the Ewaso Nyiro River, this unique 130-square-kilometer reserve resides in Kenya's rugged and seldom-explored Northern Frontier Province.

As you journey towards the park, keep watch for glimpses of Samburu herders guiding cattle through the thorn bush or camels quenching their thirst in the river. The Ewaso Nyiro River serves as a vital lifeline for the region, nurturing abundant wildlife including giraffes, zebras, oryx, ostriches, and gerenuks.

After a satisfying lunch, venture into a Samburu village for an insightful afternoon exploring their rich culture and traditions. Don't miss the opportunity to acquire a cherished souvenir from the locals' diverse collection of handicrafts.

As the day winds down, return to Sabache camp for a delicious dinner and a peaceful overnight stay, relishing the memories of your remarkable day amidst Kenya's unspoiled wilderness.

Enthusiastic bird-watchers flock to the area to marvel at its diverse avian life. The exploration of caves adds another layer of intrigue to the experience, with visitors uncovering ancient ceremonial warrior caves adorned with traditional cave art, alongside virgin cycad forests and rare medicinal plants.

The mountain holds profound significance within the local community, deeply rooted in folklore and spiritual beliefs, evident in its remarkable rock formations such as the revered "eye of God."
