Why visit the Sheldrick Wildlife Trust in Nairobi, Kenya?
Born from one family’s passion for Kenya and its wilderness, the Sheldrick Wildlife Trust was established more than 40 years ago and is best known for its Orphans’ Project, the first and most successful elephant orphan rescue and rehabilitation program in the world. The Sheldrick Trust is a pioneering conservation organisation, dedicated to the protection of wildlife and the preservation of habitats in East Africa.
Visit the Sheldrick Elephant Orphanage
A visit to the Sheldrick Elephant Orphanage might seem very tourist looking at the large number of tourists. However, they plan tourist visits wisely all at once, so that the elephants have peace and quietness for the rest of the day. Visiting the Elephant Orphanage contributes to their excistence and teaches you a lot about elephants. It is worth a visit. You might end up adopting one of these babies…!
All over Kenya
The Sheldrick Wildlife Trust works across Kenya to secure safe havens for wildlife. They not only work to protect elephants and rhinos, but entire ecosystems and the diverse flora and fauna sustained in these places of stunning natural beauty.
To date the Sheldrick Wildlife Trust has successfully hand-raised over 244 infant elephants and has accomplished its long-term conservation priority by effectively reintegrating orphans back into the wild herds of Tsavo, claiming many healthy wild-born calves from former-orphaned elephants raised in care.
