If you’ve always dreamed of going on a safari trip through Africa (and who hasn’t?) now could be the perfect time to make it a reality — EJ Africa has created a special safari package that comes with a bonus: for each trip booked EJ Africa will adopt an elephant on your behalf from the Daphne Sheldrick elephant orphanage in Nairobi.
The “Great Cats and Magnificent Elephants” luxury travel package is in part a celebration of Earth Day and also the release of the new Disney movie African Cats. Highlights include a visit to the Daphne Sheldrick elephant orphanage, time in Amboseli National Park (known for its population of happy, protected elephants) and also the Mara Triangle in the Maasal Mara National Reserve, where much of the filming of African Cats took place. Prices start at $4,400 and include most expenses (lodging, travel, meals) except travel between your home and Nairobi. It’s said to be a great trip for first-timers to Africa.
And you don’t have to book a vacation to adopt an elephant — for as little as $50 a year you can make a difference in the life of a baby elephant that needs help. Visit the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust and foster a baby today!
