A rehabilitation centre and nursery for elephants and rhinos run by the Sheldrick wildlife trust.

Here you may find Elephants and rhinos of all ages from ones just days old to several years.

Most of them are from national parks and reserves in Kenya, and are being cared for until when they can be released back into the wild or the reintegration camps.

What to do there?View young rhinos and elephant, learn about them, with a chance to feed them and even adopt one.

This doesn't mean you leave with one in your car, but merely sponsor one.

The place is open to the public for one hour at 11:00 am everyday except Christmas, though foster parents get extra time in the evening.

There also are a number of souvenir shops.
