It’s all happening within the Elewana properties. Throughout October, Elewana have had many exciting updates which we feel we MUST share with you, if you haven’t already heard.
At the wonderful Tarangire Treetops camp, we have been notified that there is now a permanent web cam overlooking the busy watering hole at Elewana’s Tarangire Treetops. So wherever you are throughout the world, you can now easily feel you are still at Tarangire and check in on the resident animals that you may have seen. Maybe you are yet to go, this is the perfect excuse to have a sneak peek at what is going on at the watering hole, ready and waiting for your arrival.
Elewana’s youngers Head Guide, Godfrey Kinyaga speaks out for the first time about his role as Head Guide and what it entails, as well as some exciting stories. He is a truly passionate about what he does, his energy is palpable, and enthusiasm is seriously catching. Godfrey works at Elewana’s Kifaru House within the Lewa Borana Wildlife Conservancy. Godfrey’s knowledge of both the animals and bush they inhabit within the conservancy is unbelievable. Here is a small snippet of his interview:
What are you passionate about?
I am passionate about all things relating to nature and the environment and being able to share this with guests.
What is the best thing about being a Guide?
The bush is my office! And I couldn’t think of a better place to spend my working day
Which species in Kenya do you believe needs conservation the most?
Rhino, giraffe, gerenuk, cheetah and the Grevy’s zebra. We’re lucky to share the Lewa conservancy with them all.
What do you love about Lewa?
I love the coexistence between the communities and the wildlife. The management of Lewa Conservancy is amazing, the dedication of all the rangers and staff involved in the protection of our wildlife
Guests who are staying at some of the Elewana properties can now contribute to the conservation of the greenery within Kenya through Seedballing. Deforestation throughout the world is a huge problem but being able to help contribute to a small part of land within Kenya is help enough. When guests arrive within the camp, they will find on the pillow in their room a pack of ten seedballs which they can use during their stay. When embarking on game drives or bush walks within the conservancies, private reserves and public land. This technique allows regeneration and re-growth. A seedball is an indigenous tree encased in a nutritious casing protecting the seeds from wildlife giving it the best chance in life – this alone is worth a visit to any of the Elewana properties?!
There is many many more updates from Elewana, far too much to tell you here (!) from an increase in sighting of Leopards within the Loisaba Conservancy due to the fantastic conservation program that is currently taking place, as well as many sightings of turtles hatching out on the beaches surrounding AfroChic. Do get on touch for more information on staying at any of the Elewana properties.
