Cape Town – Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi’s life-changing experience in Africa has come to an end.

The couple embarked on their holiday adventure last week and have since spent time in Kenya, Rwanda and Tanzania.

Their trip started on a high as they spent time with the resident giraffe of Giraffe Manor in Kenya.

They then moved on to Rwanda, where Ellen and Portia met with President Paul Kagame, the President of the Republic of Rwanda to discuss The Ellen DeGeneres Wildlife Fund’s efforts to build a gorilla conservation centre.

The couple also spent time with the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund and got to witness the breathtaking gorillas they are vying to save, in their natural habitat.

They also stopped by the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust – an orphan-elephant rescue and rehabilitation program.

There, Ellen met Enkesha, her foster elephant who was found as a baby with her trunk caught in a snare and was taken in by DSWT.


Upon their return, Ellen thanks all those she and Portia met who made their trip so special, including their trust safari guide, Michael Lorentz.
