Nairobi Airport Transfer Pick-Up And Drop-Off To And From Daphne Sheldrick's Elephant Orphanage, Nairobi

Daphne Sheldricks ELephant Orphanage Nairobi

The Sheldrick Elephant Orphanage is located near Nairobi National Park. This orphanage for Elephant Calves and Rhinos from all over Kenya was founded and still managed by Daphne Sheldrick, the widow of one of Kenya's best known Game Wardens David Sheldrick.

David Sheldrick was at the centre of the 1970's Ivory poaching wars in Tsavo National Park.

Today, the Sheldrick orphanage is a focal point for Elephant Conservation.

Elephant calves orphanned by poaching are brought here from all over the country. They receive extremely specialized treatment here, and literally receive personal care 24 hours a day from highly dedicated staff who become surrogate mothers to the calves.

Eventually the calves are moved to Tsavo, where they are carefully reintroduced into wild herds.

The centre is open to the public each morning (11am-12pm)

At this time the calves are being exercised and bathed and visitors are free to watch. This is a good centre for general information on Elephants and their Conservation.

Daphne Sheldrick Elephant Wildlife orphanage is a great place to go for a day tour from your Nairobi hotel to see the baby elephants as they are being taken care of by the caretakers. The Daphne Sheldrick elephant orphanage takes care of abandoned elephant babies and brings them up using baby milk formula and providing companionship and social attention until they are adult enough to go back to the wilderness.

The baby elephants in the orphanage are brought in after losing their mothers from poaching or being abandoned in water wells, in pits and near villages. The baby eles are so fragile that they even succumb to pneumonia when young. They are taken care of by being fed on milk formula from plastic feeding bottles until they are big enough.

The David Sheldrick elephant animal orphanage is managed by the David Sheldrick Trust which has many other anti poaching and desnaring projects in Kenyan parks. The trust was started after the death of David Sheldrick, Husband to Daphne Sheldrick in 1978. He was the founder game Warden of Tsavo National park, the largest protected area in Kenya measuring 21,000 sq km.

You will be given the life history and names of all the baby elephants at the Daphne Sheldrick elephant sanctuary and how they came to be orphaned. The baby elephants are so free with people that they will come very close to be touched by you in a special enclosure where people can interact with them.
