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.


By selecting the GRI Gold Package, you are not only supporting Chikumbi in her journey back to the wild, but you are supporting the wildlife rangers who care for them, the rangers who protect them and the rangers who work with the communities to educate and engage them. 


Your Gold Adoption Package comes with,

  • A Game Rangers International "We Are All Rangers" Baseball Cap
  • A mounted print of Chikumbu
  • A printed certificate, elephant profile card and GRI Magazine
  • A digital package including social media assets, quarterly updates on your elephant sent direct to your inbox and access to an exclusive Padlet which allows you to see your elephant's journey from the frontline. 


If you choose to subscribe there will be a new gift pack sent annually at the point of renewal. 


If you are purchasing this adoption package as a gift, please note that the email confirmation of the Adoption will go to your email address for you to forward at your leisure.  All subsequent elephant updates will go to the recipient of the gift.
