Elephant Esperanza

Elephant Esperanza

Esperanza had a very tricky start into her life. After she was born she didn’t even have time to get her first and so important milk but was abandoned right away as her family was chased off. Lucky enough for her, she was found quickly and rangers stayed with her for 24 hrs to make…

Serval Cat Kaira

Serval Cat Kaira

Kaira was hit by a car and brought to Makoa Farm many years ago. Her back leg was so badly broken and the knee shattered that it had to be amputated. She was given a forever-home with the KiliCREW, as she isn’t able to survive in the wild being a three-legged cat. Despite having only…

Villagers couldn’t help the elephants as the herd…
