In the heart of Kenya, the Sheldrick Wildlife Trust has been a beacon of hope for orphaned and injured wildlife, especially elephants and rhinos.

Their latest heartwarming story comes from an adorable baby rhino named Chamboi, whose journey has captured the hearts of many on social media.

A video shared by the Trust shows Chamboi's lovable nature as he runs energetically after his caretaker during an evening walk.

The caption accompanying the video beautifully captures the essence of Chamboi's life: "Being a pocket rocket, he loves to run fast, taking lots of breaks to meet the caretaker in between!"

Chamboi's story began on a sunny afternoon on September 6, 2023, when rangers from the Kenya Wildlife Service (KWS) and the Tsavo Trust spotted him alone near a waterhole in the free-release rhino range of Tsavo West National Park.

The area is known for its thriving population of black rhinos, yet, Chamboi's mother was nowhere to be seen.

Without hesitation, Sheldrick Wildlife Trust stepped in to give Chamboi a second chance at life.

We ran into Chamboi on his evening jaunt home.

Being the pocket rocket that he is, he likes to sprint back, with plenty of breaks for cuddles in between!

The trust, famous for its pioneering work in rescuing and rehabilitating orphan elephants and baby rhinos, has now become Chamboi's new family.

The little rhino has shown happiness in his new environment and has got along well with everyone.

From long walks and leisurely mud baths to afternoon naps and playful afternoons, Chamboi's days are full of adventure and love.

Their unwavering loyalty and adoration of their keepers, who have become their surrogate parents, highlights the remarkable bond formed between humans and wildlife under the care of the Sheldrick Wildlife Trust.
