Daphne Sheldrick Orphanage situated on the outskirts of Nairobi approximately 45 minutes drive on a plot within the Nairobi National Park. The Sanctuary cares for orphaned baby Elephants, tame black and white rhino calves and adults.
The orphanage is run by Daphne Sheldrick, the wife of the late famous Naturalist, David William Sheldrick who was the founder Warden of Tsavo East National Park in Kenya from its inception in 1948 to 1976.
Every day of the week at 1100 Hours, the baby animals are brought from the National Park for a mud-bath at the orphanage, where for an hour you can get close to them and sometimes touch them. You may not feed the animals but will get a chance to view the handlers feeding them.
The private session at 3.00pm allows you to touch the animals and feed them. This requires advance booking. During this time the elephants are fed with a special milk formula. This baby Elephants are taken care by their handlers who feed ,wash ,play and offer emotional support until they can survive in the wild and then they are trans-located to different Parks and Reserves.
In addition, there is a keeper who will give a talk about the elephants, where they came from, how they are getting on, and how some of the previous orphans are progressing. You can get really close to the elephants. The orphanage also takes in rhinos and so if you are lucky you will get the chance to see a young rhino.
