A Special Newsletter from our friends at Sanctuary Lodges:

Moments like these are so special that Abdul, the head guide at Sanctuary Olonana in the Masai Mara, just had to share this story…

“One unforgettable incident was where a mother wildebeest and her calf struggled across the river. With the strong current the mother got separated from her calf and watched helplessly as her baby was swept away. A female hippo was watching nearby, and to everyone’s amazement, she came to the calf’s rescue and pushed it gently to the river bank. The young gnu was reunited with its mother, who was waiting anxiously at the bank.  Maternal love can be so strong it even surpasses species boundaries!”
