Elephant Orphanage & Giraffe Center

Enjoy your first day with a visit to the Elephant Orphanage and Giraffe center.
After breakfast you will be collected from your hotel and visit the world renowned Sheldrick Animal Orphanage. Here you meet the animal carers who dedicate their time to rehabilitating and reintroducing animals to the wild.
The highlight of the orphanage is the large elephant population. During your visit, you will not only learn about them but also witness these majestic creatures socializing. Additionally, you can even watch them actively engage in playful games of football, adding an amusing twist to your experience. Moreover, this encounter promises to provide an educational and entertaining opportunity to connect with these remarkable animals. This initial sanctuary plays a pivotal role as the vital first stop for these young elephants on their incredible journey toward rehabilitation and eventual release back into the wild. Remarkably, the dedicated efforts of conservationists have led to the successful rescue, nurturing, and eventual release of over 300 young elephants into their natural habitats.

You have the opportunity to sponsor many of the animals and receive updates as to their care.
