Elephant Orphanage | Giraffe Centre

The tour allows travelers to explore two different sides of Nairobi city. First is the rich suburbs that includes David Sheldrick wildlife Trust (Elephant orphanage) commonly referred as a safe haven for young, lost and injured elephants. Being one of Africa’s oldest wildlife charities and a leading conservation organisation, the Sheldrick Wildlife Trust embraces all measures that complement the conservation, preservation and protection of wildlife.

Secondly, Kibera slums, famously known as the friendliest slum in the world. Kibera is home to close to one million people and hosts diverse cultures and to some extent, races. It is a neighborhood that upholds the spirit of peace, love and unity. Booking with us gives the traveler a chance to visit a market, an orphanage/school, a typical slum house and one family, a pub or restaurant (optional), a bead shop, a bone recycling plant and an aerial view of the slum.
