The David Sheldrick’s Elephant orphanage is a home for baby elephants rescued from various national parks and game reserves in Kenya’s East Africa country.
A visit to the orphanage gives you a thrilling opportunity to see the orphaned elephants real-time when they come out for feeding and take photos, listen to lectures given about their story and habits. The feeding time is between 11am- 12noon and only by advance booking can you see them.
We at Maggie Holidays East Africa Safaris and tours ensure that you get your advance booking and don’t miss out on these lifetime experience.
Pick up from your hotel /residence or airport at 10am.
Arrive at this world-famous animal refuge in time for the daily feeding at 11:00 am. Imagine the sight of dozens of baby elephants running to their handlers and latching on to giant baby bottles! It’s a scene of unforgettable cuteness.
After the babies have had their fill of formula, it’s bath time. Just feet from you, the tiny elephants roll in the mud, playing and spraying each other.
This very special place is a haven for orphaned elephants from Kenya and other countries. Rescued after their mothers or families died from drought, accident or were poached for their ivory, these babies finally have a safe home.
The orphanage is the most successful sanctuary of its kind in the world and has saved over 200 baby elephants as well as young rhinos. Coddled and raised with love, 100 of the young charges have been released back into the wild to date.
The viewing ends by 12 pm.
Drop off back to your hotel or further activities.
