Still doing jobs in Nairobi, I also checkout the Elephant and Rhino Orphanage.

It’s a fantastic place to get up close with the baby elephants, and you can even rub and pet them when they come close to the rope fence – which was often.

What a cool job!

Each elephant gulped down more than one of these massive bottles in record time.

They are all playful and energetic, and it’s great to see them doing so well after they have all been rescued from certain death for whatever reason.
It’s heartwarming to know they will be re-released into the wild, and that elephants will adopt them and they can live normal lives.
