As one of Africa’s oldest wildlife charities and a leading conservation organisation, the Sheldrick Wildlife Trust (SWT) embraces all measures that complement the conservation, preservation and protection of wildlife.

Born from one family’s passion for Kenya and its wilderness, the Sheldrick Wildlife Trust was established 45 years ago and is best known for its Orphans’ Project, the first and most successful elephant orphan rescue and rehabilitation program in the world.

The Sheldrick Wildlife Trust is a pioneering conservation organisation, dedicated to the protection of wildlife and the preservation of habitats in East Africa.

Sheldrick Wildlife Trust Nursery Location:

The SWT is located in Nairobi National Park. Access to the orphanage is via the KWS Mbagathi Gate, also known as the KWS Workshop Gate, on Magadi Road. Google maps will get you there easily.

According to SWT, arriving early for your booked visit is very important as this will allow enough time for any delays you might encounter at the KWS Mbagathi Gate following the newly mandated requirement for visitors to pay the KWS Park Entry Fee.

What time does the Sheldrick Trust open?

The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust is open to the public for one hour from 11 am to 12 pm every day.

With that being said, here is how much international visitors and local Kenyans of all ages are required to pay to visit the elephant orphanage SWT.
