Chikumbi was left behind at only 4 months old, as her herd moved past villages in the Rufunsa region of Luangwa. She was screaming for her mother but none of the elephants took notice, and she was too slow to keep up with the fast-moving herd. She became disorientated, running through Chikumbi Village as she was left alone.As the community cared for her so attentively, she was named Chikumbi. The name means “rain cloud” in the local language of Nyanja, and rain is hugely celebrated, bringing hope and prosperity.
