Established in 1977 in honor of naturalist David Sheldrick, the nonprofit organization lies within the city's national park.

With the animals' welfare at its heart, the center only allows public viewing for a limited morning period, so check the website for visitor times.

  • An excellent place to see elephants play in the mud. A plus point is anyone can adopt an elephant in the sense that it can be taken care of. It's so fun looking at them play with a ball and water

  • I loved my time here. Hearing the stories of each elephant was heart warming. It’s a place you can enjoy either with company or alone. I totally recommend. If you can, also donate. Well even visiting is an effort to the cause. Enjoy!
  • A must-do for your Nairobi experience. I've been multiple times with friends and family and it has never disappointed. My family enjoyed it so much they adopted a baby elephant aftewards. Adopting here means a financial donation that allows you to come visit the baby elephant in slightly extended hours and similar benefits. The rhino sign is also hilarious
