Samara ("Protected by God")

With a name that means Protected by God, Samara shared the experience of travelling on a plane with Zaki and has adored him ever since. Born on a big farm in Kwazulu Natal, she was bred by a vet who reared hardy horses for the safari industry. A shire thoroughbred mix, Samara is a reliable good-looking lady. Your typical best friend, she’s keen to please – the type who bakes a cake every time you visit. She was placid and composed when she saw her first wild animals and has continued to view them unflappably on every safari ride.

She carries the name Waterford as a prefix to her name Samara to credit the stud that bred her. Samara was born on 17th December 2015.
