David Sheldrick Orphanage for Rhinos and Elephants Review

Take a morning excursion, which you can book through your tour guide or hotel concierge, to this amazing rescue center that was set up by Dame Daphne Sheldrick after the death of her husband, David, who was famous for his anti-poaching activities in Tsavo National Park. You'll be able to watch baby elephants at play or having a bath, knowing that one day when they're old enough they will be successfully reintroduced into the wild. It's an absolutely unmissable and heartwarming experience. Make a donation, however small, or go for gold and adopt your own baby elephant.
