Owner description: The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust (DSWT) Elephant Nursery in Nairobi National Park provides a safe haven to orphaned baby elephants rescued by the DSWT. The Nursery provides the first stage in the hand-rearing and development of milk dependent baby elephants. Once they graduate from the Nursery, aged 2-3 years, the elephants move to one of the DSWT's Reintegration Centres in Tsavo East National Park, from where they will ultimately return to the wild.

“Baby Elephants being bottle fed. Enough Said”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2013

If this doesn't warm your heart, you should check your pulse. Seriously adorable. It's best to get there early as people are pushing to get to the front. Take time to put down your camera and just watch the elephants.

“Enjoyable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013

We enjoyed seeing all the baby elephants. The timings to the place are very restricted so it is important to get there on time otherwise you will miss the baby elephant viewing.

“An emotional Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013

Loved the little elephants, and just had to sponsor one after what I saw. How can one resist, when these people are saving the lives of such majestic animals.

“Busy on Weekends”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013

You get an hour here - 11am-12pm. Get there early on weekends if you don't want to be shooting pictures over other people's heads and cameras. Even then, you'll have a crowd of people in the background of most photos.
