Samrat, our baby elephant
In January, we were proud to celebrate the second birthday of Samrat. After his sickness and a long period of recovery, he is finally fully healed! In 2015, Samrat was seriously sick (due to a herpes virus) and fighting for his life with a 50% chance of survival. During few months, all the Sapana team and local people were helping him to get recovered. People took turns day and night, providing him necessity care and bringing food.
Now he can enjoy each day in Sapana, he is curious and quite active with many activities and games!
Srijana, the mum of Samrat
Srijana is now 40 years old. Before she arrived at Sapana Lodge, this young lady was living in a Hotel in the western part of Chitwan and was regularly going on Jungle Safari rides. Then, she became pregnant and her first owner wanted to sell her because she could not go on safaris during that time.
Sapana Village Lodge heard about that story and decided to buy her and her future baby. Now, she is enjoying her new life at the lodge.
