Tortilis Camp wildlife elephant herd with calves

The National Wildlife Census 2021 carried out by the Ministry of Tourism and Wildlife has published a positive outlook for Kenya’s elephant population. The national elephant population has increased from 32,214 elephants in 2014 to the current population of 36,169 in 2021. This represents a 12% population increase over seven years which is testament to the productive anti-poaching efforts by government and conservation partners.
