At the David Sheldrick Wildlife Sanctuary in Nairobi, home to orphaned elephants. Angela and the keepers are laying out the feeding bottles prior to the arrival of the baby elephants.
And here come the babies, some as young as 4 weeks.
An interloper, a 14 month old rhino, thinks about joining the party.
4 week old baby elephant.
Baby elephant learning to use its trunk. The keepers said that when elephants are young they often fall over their own trunks until they learn how to keep them out of the way.
Visitors can come in to the Wildlife Centre once a day for an hour and there were lots of people there making the most of the chance to get up close to the elephants.
Time for the babies to go home and let the older elephants have the limelight.
Keeper and one of the babies.
Young black rhino and his keepers.
And on the right we have my nomination for the Most Inappropriate Footwear To Wear To An Elephant Sanctuary.

My eyes, how they burn! This shop appears to have been painted using leftover paint from all of Kenya's Zain telecom shops.

Inside the Green Crater.
The lethal thorn of the acacia tree. Somehow giraffes manage to wrap their tongues around the branches and remove the leaves without being hurt by the thorns. I now know from experience that the thorns easily pierce the soles of jandals.
Hippos. More people are killed by hippos that any other animal in Africa. I'm glad I found that out *after* we puttered around Lake Naivasha in the little boat.
