About
The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust (DSWT) Elephant Nursery in Nairobi National Park provides a safe haven to orphaned baby elephants rescued by the DSWT. The Nursery provides the first stage in the hand-rearing and development of milk dependent baby elephants. Once they graduate from the Nursery, aged 2-3 years, the elephants move to one of the DSWT's Reintegration Centres in Tsavo East National Park, from where they will ultimately return to the wild.

One of my favorite experiences in Nairobi! For one hour each day, they allow visitors to see the baby elephants rescued by the Sheldrick Wildlife Trust interact with their caretakers during their feedings. It's a great organization doing really important work and this is a chance to get a glimpse into the daily lives of the baby elephants who are rescued.

Amazing experience! The baby elephants are so cute and you are able to get very close to them while they are fed bottles and snack on branches scattered around the ground. And what an amazing cause! Please make sure to visit while in Nairobi. You won't be disappointed.
