Kenya’s national carrier Kenya Airways (KQ) is getting a makeover! Two of its aircraft- a Dreamliner and an Embraer- will bear images of two Northern White rhinos and Tim the elephant. The rhinos, Najin & Fatu, are the last two northern white rhinos in the world and they live on Ol Pejeta Conservancy. Tim is the iconic elephant who lived in Amboseli and was one of the last great “Tuskers”. 

The images of Kenya’s most iconic species will help with creating visibility for our country as a must-visit destination across the airline’s network of 45 destinations while also advocating for conservation efforts.

Check out the cool makeover below.
