sheldrick elephant orphanage

I'll have a day in Nairobi....staying at the Nairobi Serena hotel......i would like to go to the sheldrick Elephant orphanage .....should i ask the hotel to hire a guide for me or is it safe for me to go there by myself? Would i take a taxi there and be able to get a taxi back to the hotel? or....are there one-day tours that would pick me up at the hotel?

Either way would be fine. A taxi can take you there and bring you back, no problem. Ask the taxi to wait for you. Keep in mind the orphanage is only open to the public from 11:00 to noon unless you're a foster parent in which case you can pre-arrange a late afternoon visit.
