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.

“must do!”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

We live in Nairobi and visit during the regular visiting hour regularly, but recently sponsored and elephant so go to visit during the special visiting hours! Sponsorship is well worth it.

“Totally in Awe!”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

We arrived in time to see the orphaned elephants being brought in for the public to see and for them to get their bottles of milk, it was a magic moment when they arrived through the bushes with their handlers. There is just a small rope barricade between us and the elephants. Most unfortunately are orphaned through poaching and this foundation has worked wonders.

So worth a visit and you can help them by adopting an orphan for a year for just U.S.$ 50. simply. Stunning and breathtaking

“A Special Place Doing Important Work”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

The elephant orphans are darling and thriving.
This is a must-do in Nairobi, you will see the sweetest elephant babies and youth while learning about this fabulous and endangered animal.
The staff and volunteers are very knowledgeable and dedicated, support them if you can!

“Very nice family trip”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

Went with my wife and son. It is a very nice trip with lots of baby elephants. The entry fee is very feasable and it only takes one hour. Ideal for young children.
