A unique opportunity to see baby elephants up close. Take the kids they will love it. Interesting to learn about the great work done here to help raise these majestic elephants. Worth going, you won't be disappointed
Elephant & Rhino Nursery is open only for an hour every day and it is very close to all other places to go (Giraffes Centre, Karen Blixon House)
At this nursery, they present the elephants and tell their stories - how they were found etc....More
Good day out for the kids but not much to do once you’ve see the elephants.

I think for anyone planning a day tour in Nairobi, David Sheldrick wildlife trust visit should be on top of their list. While it was heartbreaking to hear the stories of orphan elephants, it was really touching to see the care and protection offered by...More
An absolute must visit. You get to see rescued animals that are rehabilitated and released eventually back into the wild. They do sterling work. It’s cheap to visit $7, it’s only open for 1hr between 11-12pm. Unless you adopt, then you can visit between 5-6pm
Not all elephants are lucky enough to be rescued and end up in such a very special place.
The keepers are amazing, it's very well run and organized, the staff is very attentive, helpful and well-informed.
It's a great cause that continually needs support.
This was definitely one of the highlights of my visits to Africa.
What an amazing experience. The work these guys do is unreal. Hats off to the keepers who spend 24hrs a day with their assigned babies.
Well worth the visit.

Go to their website and choose fostering, everything is explained there. The Nursery Orphants are the ones based in Nairobi. You can also email them for an appointment and choose an orphant to foster during the visit.
