Born from one family’s passion for Kenya and its wilderness, the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust is presently the world’s most successful rescue and rehabilitation program for orphaned elephants and rhinos. It is among the first habitat and wildlife protection conservation organizations in East Africa.

It is located at the Nairobi National Park, where orphaned elephants and rhinos are cared for until they reach an age where they can live by themselves in their own environment. The Trust was founded in 1977 by Dr. Dame Sheldrick, in honor of the memory of her late husband David Sheldrick, who was the founding Warden of Tsavo East National Park.

The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust (DSWT)

is behind a rich and deeply rooted family history and is a result of

one family’s dream and love for Kenya’s natural habitat.
