Safari Host & Founder, Lori Souder came face to face with her first wild elephant in Kenya more than a decade ago. This profound experience shed light on the critical importance of acting now to save African Elephants. Lori's connection to the most important conservationist, scientists, and leaders on the ground in Kenya has established her as a lead voice for elephants in Chicago. Her passion & commitment to elephant conservation has been contagious; inspiring others to take action and to join her adventures in Africa.

" Africa changes you forever, like nowhere on earth. Once you have been there, you will never be the same. . . how do you begin to describe its magic to someone who has never felt it? How can you explain the fascination of this vast, dusty continent, whose oldest roads are elephant paths? "
