Hi, everyone, YES, that’s ME being BFF with all kinds of giraffes and baby elephants in Nairobi!!! Yes, it was as amazing as it looks!

These photos are from two different places, the Giraffe Centre (British spelling of “center”) and the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust (aka the Elephant Orphanage). Both are right on the edge of Nairobi – you can do them both in a morning, back-to-back, but plan ahead, because the Elephant Orphanage is only open for one hour every day. 

Honestly, I don’t even know how to describe this. It was so special to be able to interact with the animals that closely. Zoos are wonderful, but this was just something else. I’ll always remember it. 

((P.S. Yes, I kissed that giraffe!!! No, it was not gross!))
