David Sheldrick Elephant Orphanage Trust & Giraffe Center

Tour Overview

Start your tour with pick up at 10:00am at any hotel/ home within Nairobi.

The first stop is the David Sheldrick its strictly open between 11 am and 12 noon for only 1 hour. Here you will be able to mingle with rescued baby and teenage elephants and learn their unique yet moving stories of how they got there, how they got their names and what plans are there to release them

You will then be driven to the Giraffe centre where you will learn more about the conversation efforts to conserve an endangered species and also get to feed them and take selfies with the Giant animals.

Started in 1979, the Centre has been responsible for saving and breeding this beautiful subspecies of giraffe. Almost extinct, they are now thriving throughout Africa thanks to the heroic efforts of founders Jock and Betty Leslie-Melville.

You can be part of this effort with your admission and your interest. At the Information Centre here, you can learn how the giraffes are cared for and ultimately released back into Kenya’s parks.

You will then be driven to the Beads factory. This is a pottery company that makes one of the world most beautiful beads. You will be shown all the stages from the start to the finish. It’s also a unique factory as it employs single mother parents from the poor neighborhood who earn a living to support their families.

You then have the option of being driven to lunch and then to your hotel.
