Reteti Elephant Sanctuary 1 Day Flying Excursion

This is a great day trip to visit a community-owned elephant sanctuary in Samburu of Northern Kenya. Reteti Elephant Sanctuary is located in Namunyak Wildlife Conservancy in the remote Mathews Range and is Kenya’s second-largest elephant population.

Reteti aims to rescue, reunite, rehabilitate and rewild orphaned and abandoned elephant calves whilst creating much-needed benefits to the local people that live alongside them. Young elephants can become lost or abandoned for several reasons.

Very sadly, some lose their mothers to illegal poaching or as a result of the resource-based conflict. Others get trapped in water wells when they try to drink and are abandoned when their herds’ attempts to rescue them are unsuccessful. Some may lose their families to natural causes, drought, or disease.

The primary objective is to see elephants calves growing up in the wild under the care of their elephant families, so Reteti always tries and reunite a calf with their herd if circumstances allow, and only bring them to the Reteti if they need urgent medical attention or their families cannot be found. 

Visiting the Sanctuary is not only an incredible addition to your safari but one of the best ways to safeguard the wildlife in the area, as well as supporting the local community dedicated to protecting them. Guests get an exclusive opportunity to witness feeding and playtime at the Sanctuary, as well as an in-depth look behind the scenes.

A typical excursion includes a short flight, departing from Nanyuki, Lewa Downs Wildlife Conservancy, or from the lodge/ camp where you are staying to Reteti Elephant Sanctuary Airstrip. The scenic flight gives you a different perspective of the wild undiscovered North of Kenya, and the bonus of an aerial safari can only be a good thing.

The bush planes are great because the wings are above the windows which allow for unobstructed viewing of the stunning scenery below. During your visit, you will be paired with a keeper who will tell you about our work and answer any questions.

From our viewing platform, you will watch the elephants come in from their bushwalk to receive their bottles and then have mud hole playtime. Afterward, you will be given a behind-the-scenes tour of the sanctuary. Later you will take off and head back to your original destination.
