Visit: David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, NairobiExpert team leaders retrieve orphan animals from the wild and rehabilitate them to return to their natural environment. Keepers bottle-feed babies every three hours, 24-hours a day, and often sleep with elephants until they can be returned to the wild. While visitors are not allowed to feed the animals, the trust offers a rare opportunity to see the offspring of Africa’s largest mammals up close.The orphanage is open from 11 a.m. to noon, for an hour each day. Those who opt to sponsor an orphan elephant for $50 can arrange a private viewing outside the 11 a.m. to noon window.
