Founded by Dame Sheldrick in honour of her husband, The elephant nursery is just open to people in general for an hour, between 11am - 12pm. The visitors stroll through the minimal focus and onto an open space, with a rope wall around it. The most youthful elephants come jogging out of the hedge to welcome their managers who stand at the entrance, prepared with large jugs of milk. For the following 10-15 minutes the visitors can watch every minimal one slurp and swish their milk. When they're carried out, there's water to play with and guardians to bump and get embraces from. The viewers can touch and nestle any elephant that verges on the ropes, and at times they'll sneak by the ropes and must be pursued over by the guardians. While the tourists get to watch them play and take photographs, every infant gets presented over a receiver. It is figured out how old they were at the time when they were brought at the shelter, and it is notified where they were protected from, and what got them into inconvenience. The most widely recognized explanations behind getting stranded are that the mother may have been poached, or the baby may have fallen into traps, along with the human / wildlife clash. When the most youthful are all bolstered, they are headed forwards into the bramble, and then it is the turn of the 2-3 year olds. Some of the babies can nourish themselves, while some are still encouraged by their guardians. It is extremely adorable to watch them hold their giant flasks of milk in their trunks and speedily suck in some gallons of milk with their eyes shut. Moreover, the visitors are allowed to touch them assuming that they verge on the ropes (which they usually will), and watch them collaborate with their attendants, chomp on a few limbs of their top choice acacias, and play with the half drums of water and mud.

David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust Or Sheldrick Elephant Orphanage, Nairobi Reviews - Write a Review

  • A beautiful opportunity to get up close with this gentle creatures and watch them interact with each other. The Sheldricks team is really doing a great job. The elephant feeding is done daily from 11am-12pm. My suggestion would be to go early as the line gets pretty long.

  • What a special place to visit and support. Every morning there is visiting hour where you get to see the orphanage the elephants and hear their stories. All of the elephants are well looked after and are worked towards being returned to the wild when they are old enough or able. This is a place which should be supported for all the great things they do, visit, sponsor the elephants it's for an amazing cause.

  • A beautiful place to visit, a great elephant sanctuary where many lives of young elephants is restored. A take home message was human should stop using elephant products they are of no benefits and therefore we should never buy them. This will stop elephants poaching by not buying we cut the market and link of killing elephants.

  • A must visit to most tourists. Enjoy seeing the baby elephants being fed. One hour feeding program starts at 11 to 1200 noon daily. Welcome to the rehabilitation home to the young Elephants.

  • Nice place, If someone likes elephant very much you should go there, there are many baby elephants so cute! You can touch it And we can hear each story about elephant.
