Visit Baby Elephant Orphans in Nairobi, Kenya

The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust rescues and houses baby elephants that were orphaned throughout Kenya. Animal-lovers can see these little guys at the Trust's compound. There is a public feeding hour every day, but a visitor can contribute to the elephants' well-being by "adopting" one and visiting them during "parents" hours, which are more frequent. At feeding time, these minute pachyderms bound in from the park and rush to their bottles and branches. Each elephant has a human attendant who fits them with a blanket and lays out their mattress.

An Orphanage with 300-pound Babies

At the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust in Nairobi, Katie Cadar says, "you can meet the elephants and perhaps adopt one." There's no need to worry about your airline's weight restrictions on your flight home. Adopting in this case means you will foster one of the elephants that has been orphaned after being separated from their pack or, in some cases, due to the death of its parents at the hands of poachers. You'll get a certificate and monthly updates on your foster child's progress.
