Today we came back to Nairobi, and headed to the Kazuri bead factory. There we saw the unique manufacturing process of these famous beads and yes they do have a factory outlet where you can buy beautiful Kazuri necklaces for about $15.
Then it was on to the David Sheldrick Elephant Sanctuary (www.sheldrickwildlifetrust.org). The Shelrick compound was founded by Daphane Sheldrick after her husband David, a wildlife ranger in Tsavo for many years, died.
Before we left Greensboro we sponsored an orphaned elephant for a Christmas present for our goddaughter Sarah, NDII, Sarah's first adopted child, a five month old elephant (born on Ashlie's birthday). Normal elephant viewing time at Sheldrick is at 11am but if you adopt an elephant for $50, you can visit your adoptee at 5pm (by appointment only) after everyone else has left the sancutary except for the elephants and their handlers.
