    Absolutely loved this experience! The adoption program made the best souvenir ever for our grandchildren.

    We were picked up at our hotel and got to see the baby elephants feed right in time! Really an exciting activity as you are within touching distance to these elephants ! Just fantastic.

    orphanage was excellant but was not so good. taxi arrived late then had to stop for diesel on the way. then for some unknown reason took us to a giraffe sanctuary even though he was told that was wrong. we arrived at the orphanage late and missed the first lot being fed. even though i have complained Viator have not even bothered to respond

    The tour itself was great. The location and work they are doing is a must see. The value for money is appalling. Entry to the orphanage is paid by your guide on arrival and is 7USD. So you are essentially paying 55USD per person for a transfer from Nairobi to Nairobi National Park.

    From the CBD where we were staying this is of about 30USD value, per vehicle, not per person. Would definitely recommend skipping this tour and organising it yourself some money About 82USD for the two of us.

    I enjoyed seeing the elephants feed and play. I really enjoyed hearing the commentary on each elephant - their age, how old they were when they came to the orphanage, and the process for working with the elephants at different ages. Very informative and fun.
