Saba inspires at the RGS


Real Africa was delighted to return to the Royal Geographical Society on the evening of May 3rd 2016 to support Saba Douglas-Hamilton on the last night of her UK tour, A Life with Elephants.

Just like Real Africa's 15th Anniversary event at the RGS, where Saba was our special guest, the venue was a sell-out with a queue around the block at one point! Saba was available during both the interval and after the event to meet guests and as always she spoke for far longer than scheduled recounting childhood stories, news from the field regarding modern day conservation and about her life at Elephant Watch Camp in Samburu, Kenya. Inspiring stuff! 

Our cotton Tshirts, sold in aid of Save the Elephants went like hot cakes and it was lovely to see so many guests, as well as Saba's sister Dudu,  wearing their silver elephant pendants on the night. You can purchase the Tshirts and the pendants here.

Illustrious guests included Prince & Princess Michael of Kent who sat with Saba's father, Dr Iain Douglas-Hamilton in the front row.  We were delighted to meet Dr Douglas Hamilton and be invited to the special Save the Elephants drinks reception to mark his 50 years in conservation and recent CBE,  held after the event in the Map Room. 

To celebrate Saba's UK tour, Real Africa has an exclusive offer for anyone booking a safari to Elephant Watch Camp before the end of June 2016 - you can stay 4 nights for the price of 3. What's more, Real Africa via the Real Africa Trust makes a donation to Save the Elephants on behalf on every client staying 3 nights or more at Saba's camp.
