wіtпeѕѕ the remarkable resilience of Naboisho: A heartening tale unfolds as an elephant calf embarks on a journey amidst adversity. na

In a poignant incident on March 27, 2020, at the Masai Mara, the SWT/KWS Mara Mobile Veterinary Unit responded to a distress call regarding an elephant named ‘Namunyak.’

Tracked by the Mara Elephant Project, this revered female had passed away, leaving her 18-month-old calf orphaned, now known as Naboishu.




The post-mortem examination unveiled a tragic cause of death – an abdominal abscess, likely stemming from an old injury, had ruptured, resulting in a fatal heart attack.

Naboishu’s survival depended on a swift rescue, complicated by the challenging terrain and wet conditions.

On March 28, with the herd finally descending from a hill, Naboishu was darted and rescued through collaborative efforts from KWS, County, and Conservancy rangers.

A team from the SWT Nairobi Nursery promptly arranged for an aircraft to collect the calf, ensuring a seamless transfer upon landing.

Despite his spirited demeanor, Naboishu’s resilience shone through during his initial days at the Nursery.

With careful attention from Keepers, comforting rumbles from neighboring orphans, and a gradual introduction to the routine, he began to settle.

Named ‘Naboishu,’ meaning ‘unity’ in Maa, he symbolizes strength during the challenging coronavirus pandemic.

Naboishu’s integration with the Nursery herd was marked by playful antics, showcasing his larger-than-life personality.

His energy, combined with the nurturing environment provided by the Keepers, allowed him to adapt seamlessly to the routine.

As the Nursery continues its essential work during the pandemic, the orphans, including Naboishu, spend their days exploring the lush Park, engaging in playful activities, and adhering to the feeding and bathing schedule.

Despite visitor restrictions, Naboishu thrives in the loving care of his newfound elephant family, epitomizing unity and resilience in the face of extraordinary circumstances.
