Set deep in the heart of national parkland, the Trust's Orphans’ Project is a world-renowned elephant and rhino rescue and rehabilitation program. To date, over 200 infant elephants have been hand-raised and successfully returned to the wild herds of Tsavo National Park.

When you visit the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust between 11am-12pm at milk feeding time, you have the chance to meet some of Kenya’s orphaned elephants, now ambassadors for their species, to hear their stories and learn about the challenges faced by elephants and the people who live alongside them.

Why not foster an orphan elephant? It’s a great gift for any elephant lover in your life and a way to ensure your support continues even when you return home.

The Trust's mission statement:

"The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust embraces all measures that compliment the conservation, preservation and protection of wildlife. These include anti-poaching, safe guarding the natural environment, enhancing community awareness, addressing animal welfare issues, providing veterinary assistance to animals in need, rescuing and hand rearing elephant and rhino orphans, along with other species that can ultimately enjoy a quality of life in wild terms when grown."

This activity is a donation to the project and is therefore payable direct upon arrival.
