Bee Headshot - Elephant Havens

Boago Poloko

Co-founder/Elephant & Operations Manager


Boago, or “Bee”, has been a driving force of Elephant Havens from the very beginning. A third-generation conservationist who was raised in the bush by his father and grandfather. He is also a licensed safari guide and a naturalist. While at Abu Camp, he supervised a healthy breeding herd who lived as wild elephants during the day while returning to the camp each night. There he learned how much care and expertise is needed to raise these deceptively fragile orphaned elephants to adulthood. At Elephant Havens, Bee does it all, from managing our team of handlers to overseeing all aspects of the rescue and care of our elephants, as well as taking charge of our community initiatives.
