    C’est l’activité à ne pas manquer ! Les éléphanteaux sont tellement mignons ! J’ai beaucoup aimé cette activité. Je recommande.

    Julius, our driver, arrived early to ensure we were able to get to the site early and get good positioning for my young children. Our kids were in the front row and were able to touch the elephants. Julius ensured we had a great experience and even stayed late and arranged our next experience, something he was not required to do. Definitely a great experience

    Julius was excellent. He explained everything well and ensured that we were always comfortable. I would recommend him if going to the elephant orphanage or giraffe center.

    We booked this trip only one night before it happened. All was perfect from the beginning until the end. Pickup from our hotel on time, transport to the elephants orphanage, seeing baby elephants, learn lots of new fact, visiting souvenir shops,... Definitely thinking about support this amazing project and adopt an elephant 👍🏻

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

    This is the second time I have visited this elephant orphanage. These beautiful babies are so adorable !! The focus is on educating the public on how we can protect and support the elephants. They look like gargantuan puppies feeding and playing. The tourist experience starts with lining up outside the orphanage, then you proceed to the ticket line so it’s good if you are one of the first. After getting your tickets, you line up around he roped off pen where the elephants come for their bottle feeding. Anywhere along the rope is good as the babies meander the space after the the milk. You will have the chance to touch them when they walk by. It can be hot standing there so bring a hat and sunscreen. One of the keepers will talk for about 45 minutes while you watch these playful beauties eat, roll in the mud and play. I loved it ! After, there is the opportunity to “adopt” one which helps support their rescue and conservancy of the elephants. Yes there are souvenirs to be bought. They are not the cheapest but the point is to support their efforts. I will go anytime I return to Nairobi. It’s a great experience!

    They are only open for 1 hour per day, but well worth fighting the crowd to see these amazing creatures!

    Had a great visit and learned a lot about how the orphanage came to be. The elephants were very playful. Just be prepared to be standing for awhile.

    Trust rescues abandond and injured young elephants and rhinos from all over Kenya, returning them to the wild when they are old enough to look after themseves. Trust ensures that the young elephants find a place in a herd before they finally say goodbye. Great fun to visit to see young animals as they feed and play. You will learn about the work of the trust, and have the oppertunity to sponsor ane of the animals. Morning pick up from hotel, buck in time for a late lunch.
