VISITING DAVID SCHELDRICK ELEPHANT ORPHANAGE FARM IN NAIROBI - SHELDRICK WILDIFE TRUST

2 min read

The David Sheldrick Elephant and Rhino Orphanage in Nairobi Provides a safe haven for rescues elephants and rhinos and one of the leading conservation organization in East Africa. The Trust’s main base and location of their elephant orphanage -often referred to as the Nairobi Nursery- is in Nairobi National Park just 17 km south of the city of Nairobi, Kenya. It is located off Magadi Road.

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.

Visiting the elephant orphanage is definitely one of the favorite things to do in Nairobi. The orphanage is located about 30 minutes away from the city centre.  There is a donation fee or rather the  entrance ticket of Ksh 2,000 or $20. 

The only time that is possible to see the elephants is from 11:00 am to 12:00 pm (noon). This is the time when the keepers bring the elephants to a cordoned area to play, feed, and to show the public how well they are doing. If you’re an active adopter (Yes, you can adopt them!) you can also visit by appointment at 5:00 pm when the elephants return to the stockades for the night. The evening visit is strictly for adopters only, which is one of the benefits of sponsoring these cute elephants!

In recent years, the Sheldrick Wildlife Trust also expanded to rescue and shelter rhinos (who are unfortunately endangered) and giraffes.
