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.

Simply a Must-See while in the city, Nairobi that is! There isn't anything quite like it to visit with these little guys and learn about their story. If you end up fostering one (or more) of these guys you get to come back in the afternoon for a another more up-close-an-personal visit. The work that's being done there is fantastic and we need to learn from those sometimes very sad story's and protect these precious animals!

If you love Elephants you will love his place. The Elephant orphanage is very special. You can have the opportunity to touch the Elephants and see the babies up close. Try to get there early if you can as its only open for one hour and the traffic in Nairobi can be bad at the best of times.

There wasn't a thing that I can think of that I disliked about the place......Just beautiful and there is game driving to do in the afternoon in between the visits to the Elephants.

I took my nephew and he had a blast. He was so amazed to see the small elephants up close. Don't make the mistake I did though! It's only open for an hour each day so make sure you get the timing right.

The caretakers were also really good and provided some nice stories about the different elephants.

I really enjoyed my visit to the Trust and felt great about supporting their cause. I left much more informed and with a desire to continue to help conservation efforts. Make sure you check the times before you go, you want to make sure you're there for the feedings so you get to interact as much as possible with the elephants!
