Sheldrick Elephant Orphanage
The Sheldrick Elephant Orphanage was established in 1977 to honour the incredible conservation work of David Sheldrick. Here, abandoned or traumatised elephant calves are rehabilitated among other elephants and human carers. You can adopt a calf to pay for its care.
Karen Blixen and Nairobi National Museums
These museums cover the spectrum of Kenyan history, teaching visitors about the earliest human inhabitants of East Africa, and allowing them to envision life in the era of early European settlers like the Out of Africa author.
Lady Susan Wood established this workshop in 1975 to produce hand-crafted beads and it has since created employment opportunities for hundreds of single mothers. Only 5 minutes from House of Waine, pay it a visit to marvel at the intricate work put into creating ceramic beads. Buy a readymade necklace or choose the colours you like and have the beads strung into a precious gift for someone at home.
