$25 to enter is a bit steep but it was great to see the animals and take our time walking around. Lawrence was great as a guide.

Why are there mongoose, guinea fowl, mongoose, brown hyena etc etc in cages? They would survive fine in the wild once adults whether they were rescues or not. The stories of the rescues are all suspect - no mention seems to be made of any...More
we took 54 children from the Pehucci Orphans home in Ruai to a field trip (their last one was five years ago) to the animal orphanage. We had to pay 25$each so we stayed outside and let the children go alone (54). Thank you Kenya...More

I went here without reading the previous reviews, unfortunately. Awful conditions for the animals! None of them can ever hope to be free. 2 were limping from "playing to roughly"and I don't think they were receiving vet care for it. Lions were crowded in small...More
This might have been the most disappointing and upsetting attraction in Nairobi. Having been on a roll visiting all animal centres in Nairobi, we stopped at the orphanage on our way to the Nairobi National Park. This place is indeed nothing compared to the David...More
