Give a Lasting Gift – Adopt an Orphan Elephant

Let’s look at fostering an orphan elephant!

Did you see the Morgan Freeman narrated movie called “Born to be Wild?” Here’s a clip of the trailer. A description of the movie on IMDB says “This heartwarming film documents orphaned orangutans and elephants and theextraordinary people who rescue and raise them-saving endangered species one life at a time. … With Birute Galdikas, Daphne Sheldrick, Morgan Freeman, Chris Fries..”

So, I like to promote such wonderful work! People like  , and  are inspiring.

Which is why I like to support

Have a look at this interview I did with the President of Big Five Tours, Ashish Sanghrajka, about fostering an orphan elephant.

So, if you’re stuck for a last-minute Christmas idea, you can foster an orphan elephant!  .

If I book a safari for you with Big Five Tours, I’ll adopt an orphan elephant in your name.

I’ll even get you a Big Five Tours Navigator III book to wrap to put under the tree! (I have some just waiting for you!)

And if you’re reading this late, but still want to do it, go ahead and foster your own elephant on the Sheldrick Trust site, and we’ll connect about your safari afterwards. Wouldn’t it be cool to go visit the animal you fostered?

Of course, maybe a safari isn’t for you. I work with Big Five Tours for lots of trips besides Africa.  I love their commitment to sustainable travel.

Do you know your travel DNA?

Check this out.

and give this a read too, for a full chart overview that outlines your travel dna – picking up key characteristics, and plotting them by country/ destination – how cool is that?!


You can get your loved one to do the test with you (or you can do for yourself) and then we can plan a trip that’s right for you.  And the Navigator III will help guide you along the way – plus – I can arrange a ‘gotomeeting’ conference call with my friend Ashish of Big Five Tours to go over your ideal destination with you, and craft a special experience just for you.

Please let me know if I can help you give the gift of travel!
