Elephant Orphanage

David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, Nairobi Overview

Elephant Orphanage or David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust is a rescue and rehabilitation centre for elephants in Nairobi National Park off Magadi Road. It houses orphaned baby elephants due to poaching, drought or other human-wildlife conflicts. You can watch them be fed and cleaned in a mud bath. Photography is allowed, and there is a small gift shop to buy souvenirs.

The baby elephants are kept in a nursery for the first 2-3 years when they are milk-dependent and then transferred to the Reintegration Centre in Tsavo East National Park, where they are released into the wild. The elephants are also up for adoption, and potential adopters can book an evening appointment with the management. Recently, the project has expanded to include shelter operations for rhinos and giraffes. The only time to see the elephants is from 11:00 AM to 12:00 PM, when the keepers bring the elephants to a cordoned area to play, feed, and show the public how well they are doing. It is located about 30 minutes away by taxi.
