Naipoki is an orphaned African elephant in Kenya that the team at Sparkle Dental Boutique has adopted. Sparkle owner, Dr Sunita Verma and her sister and business manager Kavita, love elephants and have visited elephants in the wild in Thailand, Kenya, South Africa and more recently, in Sri Lanka. Their hearts went out to little Naipoki, when they read her story.
Naipoki is a headstrong little elephant who has escaped twice from her herd, only to be found trapped inside a well. She now no longer wanders off but can be found happily walking around the Nairobi Nursery.
“Our love of elephants has driven us to foster a four month old baby elephant Naipoki, who was orphaned when just 3 months old, and rescued from a well. Naipoki means “something painted” in the Maa language. Naipoki is unique in that she oozes intelligence and charm, and is adored by all the other baby elephants and the keepers.” ~Sparkle
We adopted Naipoki from The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust and more information is available at Sheldrick Wildlife Trust. http://www.sheldrickwildlifetrust.org/asp/fostering.asp

The latest entry involves Naipoki chasing warthogs with some of the other orphaned elephants.
Because Naipoki is so adventurous, she has wandered off into all the Sparkle Dental Boutique social media channels and you should keep an eye out for her.
