Day 1: Nairobi Hotel-Elephant Orphanage

Elephant orphanage caters for baby elephants and one can adopt to contribute to its conservation. The tour timings are around the feeding time where the guides tell the audience on the history of the organization and feeds the baby elephants.

We pick you from your hotel at 10.00hrs on weekdays and 10.15hrs during the weekend. We then drive to the center which can take around 30-40minutes. Once you arrive you will take a walk through the Nursery, viewers will explore the paths and trails the infants take, see a mud bath in action and walk around the stables that the orphaned elephants sleep in at night for warmth and protection, accompanied by their elephant Keepers.

Basically, the action is experience on a daily occurrence so what happens today may be a different experience than the following day. The feeding time is open from 1100hrs to 1200hrs and then you are transferred back to the hotel.
