David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust Elephant Orphanage

David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust Elephant Orphanage at Nairobi National Park on the outskirts of the capital Nairobi Rearing and conservation of elephants and black rhinos in Kenya.

In the elephant orphanage, baby elephants who have lost their parents find a new home. Most of the parents of these elephants are victims of poaching. Usually only the young animals remain, which starve to death in a very short time due to the loss of the herd or become the prey of predators if they are not found in time by game wardens and brought to the orphanage.

Sick or orphaned cubs are hand-reared here at the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust (DSWT) Elephant Orphanage. This station is run by Daphne Sheldrick and is open to visitors 1 hour per day.

If you are in Nairobi, then visit Nairobi National Park. It is best to book a combination package together with the David Sheldrick elephant rearing station and a visit to the Giraffe Center Nairobi.

Then you are definitely on the go all day. Of course there is also the possibility to be picked up directly from the hotel in the morning. and in the early evening the tour ends back at your hotel in Nairobi.
