Daphne Sheldrick’s animal orphanage is a delightful excursion and a must-see in Nairobi. Daphne was the wife of David Sheldrick, a famous game warden who was based in Tsavo National Park. After his death in the ‘70’s Daphne set up a trust to foster orphaned animals, with a special emphasis on elephants. Sadly ,Daphne lost her life to cancer in April 2018.
A visit to Daphne Sheldrick’s orphanage will leave you feeling warm and fuzzy inside as you watch the orphaned elephants interact with each other, a soccer ball, their keepers and their milk bottles. There is no place quite like it.
