Nairobi national park animal orphanage.

I will be in Nairobi for a couple of days and thinking about visiting the Nairobi national park animal orphanage. I have a couple of questions.

Is this different than the David sheldrick elephant orphanage?

How much does it cost to get into the orphanage?

Do I have to pay to get into the national park Then pay additional to get into the orphanage?

Many thanks.

Hi - there are 3 venues at KWS Langata: Orpanage, National Park entrance & Safari Walk.

Cost of non-resident is $40 PP for NP entrance & $20 each to Safari Walk & Orpanage

More info here:

Sheldrick only has elephants. Open for a couple of hours in a day.

At Sheldrick, instead of being just a tourist & paying the entrance fee, use that money toward fostering an orphan baby elephant(s) or rhino(s) for $50 year/per and spend a private time with it(them) after mud bathing before bed time.

Yeah I do actually sponser an elephant there and have done for a number of years. But I was just making sure that the Nairobi Animal Orphanage was not the same thing.....;)

No connection, turbo. The Nairobi Animal Orphanage is a waifs and strays "zoo" for animals from various national parks, whereas the DSWT is, as you know, a genuinely worthwhile facility rearing (and subsequently releasing) orphaned elephants.
