DESTINATION ZIMBABWE | International Fund for Animal Welfare


Six rescued elephants have just taken the next step in their journey back to the wild!

In May 2018, IFAW and our partner, Zimbabwe Elephant Nursery (ZEN), translocated six rescued elephants to their new home in Panda Masuie Forest Reserve. The move of 700 kilometers [over 400 miles] took months of careful planning by ZEN and their team of experts.


The elephants arrived at ZEN after suffering traumatic events including injury, abandonment and loss. It’s through expert care and their emotional bond with ZEN handlers that each elephant has developed his or her own personality and determination to survive.

In their newly constructed “boma,” or protected enclosure, the elephants have a safe space to adjust to their new surroundings, explore and learn new skills. Together, these elephants are undertaking the vital next step in their rehabilitation process before they can be reintroduced into the wild.
