A soulful journey at The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust

Enticed by the feeling of being fully alive, I packed my camera bag full of lenses and unleashed myself into the wilderness of the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust – a sanctuary for elephants and other wild animals. The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust is fervently indulged in the preservation of wildlife.


I read extensively about the commendable motive of this foundation and ultimately surrendered to its splendor. On the 10th of February 2013, I plunged myself into the serenity of this place and the feeling of standing meters away from the elephants remains indescribable. People were flabbergasted by the sight of the endearing elephants proceeding for their daily mud bath. The baby elephants were playful and impish. I got entirely engrossed in taking pictures until an elephant looked into my eyes. I stood momentarily still and I allowed the moment to sink in. The majestic elephant then walked away. I wonder if her silence meant something though.

It was a soulful journey. I promise to visit this heavenly nature reserve again.
