The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust is mainly known for taking care of orphaned elephants and rhinos but generally they exist to protect the wildlife in Kenya.

As everybody can support the Trust e.g by fostering a baby elephant I joined the programme last year and I visited them in October, taking the opportunity that I started my safari from Nairobi.

Although my “babies” have already been moved to Ithumba where they are prepared to return to the wildlife, it was a great experience to see the other little elephants during their mud bath, to learn more about the Trust and the whole programme.

You can visit the Trust everyday at 11 a.m. and, if you are a fostering parent, also in the afternoon. They are located in Nairobi, Mbagathi, 00503.
