We support important foundations as a result of our Magellan Travel group membership, one of which is ‘The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust’ in Kenya. This trust has played a key role in ensuring the survival of the many orphaned elephants in Kenya for more than 25 years.
It is with sadness today that we learned of the passing of Dame Daphne Sheldrick through breast cancer at the age of 83.
