The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust

Protecting Elephants
In Nairobi
The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust

Situated on the outskirts of Nairobi, only a 45-minute drive from the city centre, sits a sanctuary that this year marks its 41th year of protecting and conserving wildlife. Angela Sheldrick, the daughter of David and Daphne together with an exceptional team of animal care-takers, run the most successful orphan-elephant rescue and rehabilitation program in the world.
Whether you’re a first-time visitor of Nairobi, or returning for another excursion, this is a truly gratifying and humbling experience that should be at the top of your to-do list. Witness first hand, how one family’s passion for Kenya and its wilderness has founded a pioneering conservation organisation for wildlife and habitat protection in East Africa.
