Bee Headshot - Elephant Havens

Boago Poloko

Co-founder / Elephant Manager


Boago, or “Bee”, has been part of Elephant Havens from the very beginning. He is a third-generation elephant handler who was raised in the bush by his handler father and grandfather. Bee is also a licensed safari guide and a naturalist. In his past years working at Abu Camp, he supervised a healthy breeding herd who lived as wild elephants during the day while returning to the boma each night. There he learned how to raise these deceptively fragile orphaned elephants to adulthood. At Elephant Havens, Bee manages our team of handlers and oversees all aspects of the rescue and care of our elephants.
