Snapshot: Elephant Orphanage in Nairobi

10 August 2012


Feeding time at the Elephant Orphanage in Nairobi. This was a fun moment at the orphanage with another baby trying to get some milk from this guy’s mouth. They feed them a formula based on human milk, instead of cow’s milk, cause it’s too fatty for elephants to breakdown. These elephants are taken in by the orphanage when their moms become victims of poaching. They’re taken care of and after reaching 3 years of age, they’re slowly introduced back into the wild. Farewell from Nairobi party tomorrow and then I have to start packing the bike 🙂
