Elephant & Rhino Orphanage and Giraffe Centre 

Early this year I had a chance to visit The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust Elephant & Rhino Orphanage and Giraffe Centre with Rayhab Gachango.

DSWT is a rescue & rehab center for orphaned elephants, open to the public for viewing mud baths & feedings. Founded in 1977 by Dr. Dame Daphne Sheldrick D.B.E, in honour of the memory of her late husband, famous naturalist and founding Warden of Tsavo East National Park, David Leslie William Sheldrick MBE, the DSWT claims a rich and deeply rooted family history in wildlife and conservation.

The Africa Fund for Endangered Wildlife (A.F.E.W.) Kenya was founded in 1979 by the late Jock Leslie-Melville, a Kenyan citizen of British descent, and his American-born wife, Betty Leslie-Melville. They began the Giraffe Centre after discovering the sad plight of the Rothschild Giraffe. A subspecies of the giraffe found only in the grasslands of East Africa.
