Daphne Sheldrick Elephant Orphanage Nairobi Day Tour

Daphne Sheldrick Elephant Orphanage Tour Nairobi Day Trip is a Nairobi Day excursion to a sanctuary for Orphaned Elephants, Rhinos, and other animals located off Magadi Road Nairobi, Kenya.

Daphne Sheldrick Animal Orphanage is located in a secluded area of the Nairobi National Park, where orphaned baby elephants amongst other animals are taken care of by a dedicated team of conservationists.

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. 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 can visit between 1100 Hours and 1200 Hours every day and see the elephants being fed and playing. 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.

The private session is strictly between 1500 Hours to 1600 Hours each day allowing you to see the animals in private and you will be able to interact with them. This requires advance booking through African Spice Safaris. An adoption viewing session visit is available for foster parents between 5 pm – 6 pm.

This is for those people directly supporting the care of the orphans, active adapters, to witness the elephants returning from the forest for their evening milk feed and bedtime.

Sheldrick Baby Elephant Orphanage is located inside the Nairobi National Park and the drive from the city center takes approximately 45 minutes. The orphanage is open for only an hour daily to the public. 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.
