Animal Orphanage Tour
The Nairobi Animal Orphanage is located in the Nairobi National Park. It serves a treatments and rehabilitation centre for wild animals. The Orphanage hosts lions, cheetahs, hyenas, jackals, serval cats, rare Sokoke cats, warthogs, leopards, various monkeys, baboons and buffalo. Various birds can also be viewed including parrots, guinea fowls, crowned cranes and ostriches. The Orphanage is home to deeply traumatized, often injured, suffering from shock and grief having lost their mother and family- orphaned animals from all over Kenya. The orphanage is not big – in fact, it is rather small, but this helps make it very intimate and easy to wander around.
What adds to its charm and sense of personalization is that every enclosure has a notice describing the animals which allows you to relate to them.
The Orphanage educates the public about wildlife and environmental conservation in Kenya. One can read the life history of each animal – whether it was rescued or born in captivity. Between 2.00 pm to 3.00 pm is a good time to see the animals as they are fed.
Nairobi Animal Orphanage is about 20 minutes drive from Nairobi’s city centre. Located only about 7 kilometers from the city centre, animal orphanage is easily accessible on tarmac roads, off Lang’ata Road, Kenya Wildlife Service Headquarters.
The orphanage is a wider part of the Nairobi National Park – the first to be established in East Africa on the 16th of December 1946. The park makes Nairobi a special capital as it is the only city in world where wild animals live naturally in the wild transforming Nairobi into Africa’s prime safari capital.
