elephant orphanage nairobi

This is a really fun activity in Nairobi that will also most likely touch your Heart. The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust Elephant Nursery bordering Nairobi National Park offers safe haven to orphaned baby elephants rescued from parks and reserves in Kenya. The nursery cares for the young elephants, including hand rearing them until they are old enough to be gradually introduced back to the wild in Tsavo East National Park.

The Entry Fee is USD 5 per person [ adult or child] or approximately Ksh 500 per person in Kenya shillings. Visiting timings are 11 am to 12pm daily ( 1 hour). As the orphanage lies on the outskirts of Nairobi city, off Langata road, it is advisable to allow for enough time to get here.
