Hope For Elephants :: One Woman’s Passion

Pete Ilsley here, so chuffed to receive this blog post.

With one woman’s passion and the support of an entire community, conservation is alive and well in the remote north of Kenya. There is something so very special about taking clients on epic walking safaris in the vast Northern Frontier District. A symbiotic relationship begins; minds open, awareness is created and the recognition of the tireless work of frontline conservation is celebrated.

This blog post, penned by one of our regular walking aficionados and avid supporter of the Milgis Trust, Mark Deeble, celebrates just that; the life and work of an extraordinary conservationist and woman, Helen Douglas-Dufresne, and the Samburu community.

  1. Well done Helen (and Pete!) Very appropriate this as just going through old albums and found a picture of our first camel safari Helen, with you – – – hugging a ??! camel! You are doing an amazing job and when I finish breaking legs and other things, maybe one day I will walk with you.
