Angelina Jolie and her children recently attended the especially meaningful opening of the Shiloh Wildlife Sanctuary in Namibia; a special refuge for rhinos and elephants recovering from poaching attempts.
The sanctuary was named after 11-year-old Shiloh Jolie-Pitt
The main aim of the Shiloh Wildlife Sanctuary is to assist and care for any rhinos or elephants that have been injured or orphaned in a poaching incident.
The Sanctuary is one of many projects at N/a’an ku sê funded by the Jolie-Pitt Foundation.
Work at the Arusha workshop does not stop, indeed, they proceed at an incredible pace!
The mechanics, after removing the pick-up box, cut the chassis in two parts, a little bitter and apprehensive in seeing the cut car in two, but they assure us that this operation has already been done many times And now they make it with eyes closed.
The chassis has been cut to extend it and can thus "accommodate" a longer and comfortable cabin for our future guests.

These beautiful picture, take in Serengeti, is the first ever taken of a wild lioness nursing a cub from a different species, an extremely rare event.
Dr Luke Hunter, President and Chief Conservation Officer for Phantera, a global wild cat conservation organisation which supports Kope Lion, told the BBC the incident was "truly unique".
"It's not something that I'm aware has ever happened before between large cats like this," he said.
"We know there are cases where lionesses will adopt other lion cubs... But this is unprecedented.

For some days our mechanic has started working on our car; The pick-up caisson will soon become a cozy cabin with comfortable armchairs, sockets to charge batteries and phones, objects holders, large windows to look at nature and of course the sunroof from where to go out to better see and photograph animals.
The first thing to do is remove the pick-up back caisson and stretch the car's floor by about one and a half meter.

We are really excited, we just bought our first car to be used to take our guests around for safaris in Tanzania.
To tell the truth we bought a pick-up, that, to be transformed in a car good for safaris, needs to be tuned, but it is a good starting point.
The pick-up is a Toyota Land Cruiser, like most of the cars used for safaris in Africa; it is basically new and it has a been a real bargain, thanks to our good Tanzanian friend who has been monitoring the situation for us during the last several months.

The Giraffe Conservation Foundation is excited to announce that World Giraffe Day, 21 June 2017 is dedicated to saving Masai giraffe in Kenya and Tanzania.
Giraffe have recently been listed as Vulnerable to extinction on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species. Giraffe numbers in Africa have plummeted by a staggering 40% over the last 30 years. We estimate today that there are only less than 100,000 giraffe remaining in all of Africa.
