Dedicated Staff at Norman Carr Safaris in Zambia Help Save the Life of a Baby Elephant and Mother – With No Time to Spare
SOUTH LUANGWA VALLEY, ZAMBIA (11/11) – There is a rule in the Bush that man does not interfere with nature. But sometimes that rule needs to be broken, especially if an animal is about to die a cruel and grim death. This just happened in the South Luangwa National Park in Zambia where a team of caring people from Norman Carr Safaris, the South Luangwa Conservation Society (SLCS) and the Zambia Wildlife Authority (ZAWA) pulled together to save a baby elephant and its mother who were struggling to be free from the deep mud of the Kapani Lagoon. At first it was a losing battle but perseverance, courage and strength made the difference.

The South Luangwa National Park is Zambia’s premier wildlife destination and is renowned for its unspoiled beauty and varied habitats. Norman Carr was the first in the Luangwa Valley to believe it was possible to preserve wildlife and at the same time, directly benefit the local community through tourism. He introduced the idea of eco tourism to the valley more than 50 years ago and was the first to offer walking safaris. Though Norman Carr himself is deceased, the ideals upon which Norman Carr Safaris is founded are still practiced today and provide one of the most rewarding safari experiences possible.
