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.

It's great. Inexpensive unless you want to adopt an elephant which I did - was given a lovely package of info plus a beautiful watercolour print of Napoiki, the elephant that I adopted. Great for kids. Go.

This place is amazing just for what they do and how much care they show to the elephants. We need places like this to preserve the beautiful animals that make this country a popular destination. I enjoyed learning the history of each of the elephants and learning about elephants in general. This is something everyone must do if you are in Kenya but I think one visit is more than enough. I would recommend it to everyone to go at least once and make a donation.

I was traveling on Business and had a Saturday free having been up North and seen nothing but cattle and Sheep I wanted to see some indigenous animals this place was good and doing a great job but it is sad that so many baby elephants are orphaned by poacher scum. Loved the Warthogs!

Nothing compares to seeing an orphan elephant grab a bottle of milk from a handler and guzzle. Or to see the babies look up to their handlers with trust and see their handlers look back with adoration - parenthood refined.
