Anne Curtis and Erwan Heussaff are currently celebrating their first wedding anniversary with a trip to South Africa. Anne shared on Instagram some photos from their travels, including one that showed her husband’s gift for her. According to Anne’s post, Erwan fostered an orphan elephant from the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust in Kenya as an anniversary gift.
 
“Part of my anniversary gift from @erwan. He fostered a little orphaned elephant in my name. We visited her yesterday. Her name is Enkesha. Born a day after my birthday,” Anne wrote.
 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Part of my anniversary gift from @erwan. He fostered a little orphaned elephant in my name. We visited her yesterday. Her name is Enkesha. Born a day after my birthday 🐘 She had to be taken in because of a horrible wire snare that was wrapped around her little trunk. It now has a little hole in it because when she was much smaller she somehow was able to take the stitches out. Kulit. She’s sooo cute when she sleeps though. She puts her little trunk up on that blanket behind her and just lets it rest there. If ever you visit Kenya, a visit to @dswt is a must. There are so many little elephant calf’s that have been rescued and you get to learn about all their stories - where they were found and why they had to be saved 🐘 #ERWANNEderlust #ERWANNEderlustAFRICA

Anne also revealed the unfortunate history of baby elephant. “She had to be taken in because of a horrible wire snare that was wrapped around her little trunk. It now has a little hole in it because when she was much smaller she somehow was able to take the stitches out. Kulit. She’s sooo cute when she sleeps though. She puts her little trunk up on that blanket behind her and just lets it rest there,” Anne said.

Aside from meeting their foster baby elephant, Anne also got a chance to bond with some incredible wildlife like giraffes, white rhinos, zebras, and even lions. 

 

  

The anniversary trip was also the Anne and Erwan’s honeymoon, after they tied the knot last year on November 12.
