    Life-Changing Trip

    Ellen DeGeneres & wife Portia de Rossi spent time this summer in Great Tew in Oxfordshire - UK , Kenya, Rwanda to launch “The Ellen DeGeneres Wildlife Fund “ and Tanzania.

    Ellen has been teasing since her birthday show in January that she and her wife, Portia are heading to Africa for their holiday for a very special reason.
    In celebration of Ellen’s 60th birthday on 26 January, and her love for animals, Portia gifted Ellen with her own namesake wildlife fund.
    Combined with Ellen’s absolute love for Dian Fossey’s dedication to animals, Portia added that The Ellen DeGeneres Wildlife Fund’s first initiative would be to build a gorilla conservation centre in Rwanda and will form part of the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund.

    Well, the time for Ellen to visit the location which she plans to help has finally come.

    The couple’s African adventures began in Kenya to Rwanda to Tanzania and ended back to Kenya
    Their trip started on a high as they spent time at Soho farm House in Great Tew in Oxfordshire .

    They then moved on to Kenya to spend a pit moment at Giraffe Manor

    After that they flew 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.
    Ending their trip on a high, Portia and Ellen spent their final days between Kenya and Tanzania in the Serengeti.

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