Adopt an African Elephant: Nkala

Covid-19 Adoption Announcement: In light of the recent government lockdown, we are unable to post adaptation packs ordered after Monday, 23 March 2020. An e-copy of your adoption pack content will be emailed to you. The sketch (and toy) will be sent at a later date. Please accept our apologies and we hope you understand under these difficult circumstances.

Nkala was discovered at just three months old wandering alone and distressed among cattle in the middle of the night. Now safe with his carers at the elephant orphanage in Zambia this lively little elephant is guzzling milk and finding his feet among his adopted family.

By adopting Nkala you will not only be helping to save, care for and then release back into the wild, all of our existing and future orphans; but also helping to protect their elephant cousins in the wild.

This special adoption comes with the choice of adding a handmade elephant toy to your pack. Each toy is individually and lovingly made by Little Ndaba, a women’s community group in Zambia that helps provide alternative incomes to those living close to wildlife. Nkala suffered from a hernia, leaving a small scar on his belly and this distinguishing mark is shown on the hand made crochet toy to make sure they are as close to life as possible!
