DEPART AND DRIVE TO DAPHNE SHELDRICK ELEPHANT ORPHANAGE IN TIME FOR FEEDING THE ELEPHANTS (FEEDING STARTS AT 1100 HRS FOR 01 HOUR)

Get ready to come close to elephant calves! As part of the David Sheldrick Conservation Foundation, Daphne Sheldrick rehabilitates baby elephants and other wildlife here at her home just outside of Nairobi National Park. These babies have lost their mothers to poaching, death, injuries, on getting lost in the wild or other tragedies. Daphne and her dedicated staff raise them to be released back into the wild when they are ready. I'ts worth visiting to see humanitarian care of the wildlife and the heart it takes to care. There is a small entrance fee which can also be paid through purchasing a souvenir or donating to the conservation.

DRIVE TO GIRAFFE CENTRE AND EXPERIENCE FEEDING GIRAFFES.

Since the Giraffe Centre’s founders Jock and Betty Leslie-Melville rescued a baby giraffe named Daisy from a heavily-poached area of western Kenya in 1974, their home has become a household name among wildlife lovers world-wide and Daisy a star in her own right.

The Giraffe Centre is a non-profit organization whose main objective is to educate school children and the youth of Kenya on conservation. It’s also a fun place for visitors to learn about conservation, giraffes and actually get to feed the giraffes! 

Lunch will be provided at one of the restaurant within.
