I am Champa Kali. The name “Champa” means white flower. I was born on April 3 1990. This year I became 42 years old. I am still single. Maybe someday I will get a wonderful husband who loves me. I weigh around 9,215 lbs. It has been 15 years since I started living at Sapana Village Lodge. Before that I used to live in India where they used me for giving people rides on my back on their wedding ceremony, for carrying woods. I was brought to Sapana Village Lodge by the owner of the Lodge Mr. Dhruba Giri. Ever since I came to Sapana Lodge I have been treated with kindness and love. Everyday they feed me good food and I get to live with similar friends like me. Together they take us to graze in the jungle at 6-10 am in the morning and again at 1:30pm to 5pm the rest of the time we live in our shelter. I take bath 3 times a day. Along with my friends I am involved in animal friendly programs like Elephant feeding, Elephant candy making, Elephant Day Care Program and Elephant Bush Walk which involves making fruit baskets and feeding us, taking a walk with us in the bush with the beautiful sunrise and letting us be closer to the guests at lodge.
