David Sheldrick elephant sanctuary Nairobi

I will be staying at the Nairobi tented camp for purposes of visitng the elephant sanctuary. I am a donor at Sheldrick's and am told by the tented camp that it will cost me $85 for a transfer over to the sanctuary and entry for a 5 pm - 6 pm visit. I thought they were on the same turf, so why the $85? We would also like to visit the 11 a.m. showing at the elephant orphanage. Does that mean another $85?? Would I normally be paying this much to do so? Can anybody provide information on this topic?

Thank you

Yes, I managed to get the "Lina" e-mail link from an agent. Lina was very helpful, and she booked me in at the 5:00 timeslot, so at least I am on the list now. Still working on transportation, but she gave me the name of a reputable taxi link which I will contact.

Thanks again everybody for all the help you have given me!

I've just finished reading Daphne's autobiography. It's one of the most wonderful books I've ever read.

"An African Love Story; Love, Life & Elephants"

amazon.co.uk/African-Love-Story-Elephants-eb…

It's also out in paperback from Jan 3 2013.

I bought that for my mum - she absolutely loved it too. Must get round to reading it myself; will probably be blubbing like an idiot when I do.

It's an amazing story of her life & her love of both David & her orphans. Having met Daphne a couple of years ago I was amazed to find that as a young woman she was incredibly beautiful.

It's a brilliant tale & very well written. It would make a terrific movie. It would be like "Out of Africa" without the hedonistic behaviour. I was aware of her work with her orphan ellies but it's the tales of all her other orphans in Tsavo which are so amusing.
