† Sarara is a dead Male ♂ African savanna elephant (Loxodonta africana), , who died 2022-12-28 at Samburu National Reserve, in Kenya, .
Sarara was born wild 1990 at Kenya unspecified location.
2022-12-28: one of the most beloved and famous resident bull elephants in Samburu National Reserve, northern Kenya. The carcass of the 32-year-old wild bull, who was in the prime of his life, was discovered to the south of Buffalo Springs National Reserve. His Tusks
were intact and recovered by the Kenya Wildlife Service, and we suspect that he was the victim of conflict in an area known as the Attan Swamp. Conflict between humans and elephants worsened in northern Kenya during the drought, but Sarara's death came after rain. Large numbers of elephants had congregated in the Attan Swamp due to the fresh, lush grass. A year ago, Sarara needed urgent medical attention after he was speared. That time he was treated for his injuries and recovered quickly, gaining enough strength to make it through Kenya’s crippling drought. This time, however, his luck tragically ran out and his life was brought to an abrupt end.
