One night late last year high on the Mountain above us, secret romance did its magic.
Prince William proposed to his long time love Kate Middleton and she gracefully accepted to become his future Queen of England.
That same night a baby bongo was born, (almost within earshot of the lone lovers, we like to think).
We named the beautiful little antelope ‘Miss Kate’ in honor of the future queen of England.
‘Miss Kate’ will remain here in the safety of the Mount Kenya Wildlife Conservancy until she reaches breeding age and her own suitable “Prince” can be selected.
It is hoped that together they will one day roam free and raise their own young in the wilderness of the Mount Kenya Forests where their ancestors once roamed.
Please support our bongo rehabilitation program.
You can join our international family of friends by becoming a member of the Mount Kenya Wildlife Conservancy.
You can even adopt your own live bongo or any of our needy animals to sponsor their care and release.
All donations are used solely for the care of the animals. That is our pledge!
The Founders and Trustees of the Mount Kenya Wildlife Conservancy have pooled their resourses for more than 40 years to save the flora and fauna of Mount Kenya for our future generations.
