Activities at Giraffe Manor

Adopt an Elephant

Adopt an Elephant

Visit the David Sheldrick Elephant Orphanage in Nairobi where you can adopt a baby elephant and see them feed from a bottle. You can adopt an elephant for US$ 50 (for two people) and visit them at 5 pm where you’ll see your baby put to bed. Or you can go at 11 am when the orphanage is open to the general public and pay a US$ 7 donation. Both experiences are very special. Transfers from Giraffe Manor are included at no extra cost.

AFEW Giraffe centre
