Which animal orphanage, the KWS one or Sheldrick? Sheldrick is only open to the public between 11:00 and noon. KWS orphanage is open all day but I'm unsure of the exact hours.

Giraffe Manor www.giraffemanor.com is a place of accomodation. Next to the Manor is the Giraffe Centre which is open to the public for hand feeding of Rothschild giraffe.

The Giraffe Centre, Sheldrick and KWS Orphanage can all be easily visited in one day. You should plan your schedule around the public viewing hour at Sheldrick. The others are open all day.

I just called the KWS (Kenya Wildlife Service) and the Nairobi Animal Orphanage is open from 8am-6pm every day.

I was there last month. I went to the Giraffe Centre first....at 9:00 a.m. and then scooted over to the Sheldrick Elephant Orphanage for 11:00 a.m. There was no problem with either place getting in and a group of 13 would not be a challenge. Then I went to Mamba Village to see the crocs, the ostriches and just relax in the gardens there - have a bite to eat...and finally, ended up at Bomas of Kenya. Was a good day and I saw alot.
