Visiting the Nairobi Elephant Orphanage
The Sheldrick Wildlife Trust is world-renowned for its work rescuing and rehabilitating orphaned baby elephants. Our Nursery, located in Nairobi National Park, is where an orphan's journey begins — a journey that will culminate, years down the line, in their reintegration back into the wild.
To join us, please use the calendar below to find availability, then select your preferred date and book your tickets. Note that you will not be charged when booking tickets online; payment is due— in Cash or Mpesa — on the day of your visit.
