Garzi, Vuria and Ziwa Discover Ithumba
On 2nd June 2014 everything and everyone was in place for the move to the Ithumba Rehabilitation Stockades of Vuria, Garzi and Ziwa. At Ithumba, these three young bulls join their friends Bomani, Teleki and Orwa, who were translocated to Ithumba just 4 days earlier and from here, they will all begin to integrate with wild herds.
Elephant moves always take into account friendships and so at 3.30am on 28th May, three little bull elephants - friends Bomani, Orwa and Teleki mounted the elephant mover and began their journey to the Ithumba Reintegration Centre. Watch their first steps at their new home, meeting the older orphans who will join them on their journey back to a life in the wild.
