A Haven for Elephants and Rhinos, The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, Nairobi

It is actually in Nairobi! I didn’t know :-/ I had heard of an Elephant and Rhino Orphanage, but always assumed it was far, or inaccessible, but it’s really just there and completely worth the visit!



Info & Logistics:

  • Visiting hours are STRICTLY 11 am to 12 noon. It is recommended to arrive by 10:30 if you want a good view.
  • We used the entrance off Magadi road (Opposite Multimedia University)..It is a significant distance from the main road.
  • Entrance is 500 ksh for all visitors


I would advise combining this visit with other activities or sites in the area (including a visit to Rolf’s place, you can read about it on my leisure page). The speaker gives some information about the various orphaned elephants. You will certainly learn something new, I won’t spoil that for you 😉

Protecting Kenya's Wildlife

Visit them folks, you won’t regret it!!! You can also learn about what kind of work they do and if you are able and willing, how you can help too…
