The 12th of August marks the second annual World Elephant Day. This day was devised in order to create awareness of the current plight of both our African and the Asian elephants. The elephant is a loved, revered and respected animal by a variety of cultures around the world and it is therefore our duty to do whatever we can to ensure their safety and survival for our future generations.
World Elephant Day asks you to experience elephants in non-exploitive and sustainable environment where elephants can thrive under care and protection. This being said Pumba Private Game Reserve is thrilled to announce the delivery of a new baby elephant to our conservation reserve.
The new addition to the herd was born on Saturday the 26th of July 2014 and is the baby of the Matriarch of the herd. The calf is one of three babies born into the herd since March this year, all from different mothers. The other calves are respectively a male and a female and we are awaiting anxiously to determine the sex of our newest member once the calf is old enough.
The herd along with its youngest members have been providing guests with some incredible sightings. Join us on World Elephant day by expressing your concern, sharing your knowledge and support solutions for the better care of elephants across the globe.

We are delighted to pass on this story relating to World Elephant Day on the 12th August. Pumba Private Game Reserve located in the Eastern Cape of South Africa has long since been a favourite amongst our clients and the arrival of any new off-spring is always lovely to hear. If you would like to know more about Pumba, or any other holiday with a wildlife or safari element for that matter, please do not hesitate to call us on 01323 446550, email us on  info@experienceholidays.co.uk, or visit our website at  www.experienceholidays.co.uk

Kenya – the home of the safari and still one of the best places for wildlife viewing

It was good news at the end of last week when the Foreign and Commonwealth Office revised its views on travel to Kenya. Apart from those regions abutting the border with Somalia, the rest of the country is considered safe for travellers.

Being one of the first to take advantage of this news could ensure you have a wonderful safari in iconic African surroundings, finishing with time on one of the world’s best beaches and all at very reasonable prices. Provided you do not want to go in school holidays or when the wildebeest migration is in the Masai Mara then you could very well be going for a 4 night safari followed by 5 nights on the beach and including your flights for under £2,500 per person.

Nor are we talking about large hotels and crowded minibuses. We are thinking of small tented camps in some of the best locations in Kenya. Because you will be in a Conservation area or Game reserve that exists alongside the National Parks, you will have a feeling of safaris as it was when it all started. Then there is time to relax on a stunning silver beach and the warm Indian Ocean to swim in. Relax, snorkel, dive or deep sea fish – it is all up to you.

Direct flying time is just over 8 hours and usually overnight allowing you to start your safari soon after you arrive.
