Concrete water pans are useful because they minimize water loss through ground seepage. Whether they are filled with our water trucks or with rain water, they are a good source of drinking water for all the animals. Normally, our water pans are shallow which enables all wildlife access to water and they are carefully constructed to prevent baby elephants from getting stuck.
So far, we have created 2 concrete water pans: one in Lumo Sanctuary and one in Tsavo West National Park. Our plan is to build 20 water pans (15 in Tsavo West and 5 in privately owned ranches within Tsavo).
Of course it’s baby elephants that need special consideration.
Donations are essential to the work of Mwalua Wildlife Trust. Funds are used to deliver water to wildlife, build and maintain water pans, water catchments, water pumps and tree nurseries, and support solutions in communities that will reduce human wildlife conflict. Please consider donating so we can continue our conservation efforts. Follow us on Facebook or sign up for our Newsletter to stay informed about our work. DONATE NOW
