Don't even think about being late for your visit to the David and Daphne Sheldrick Elephant Orphanage in Nairobi, Kenya. I was running late. Traffic isn't the right word to describe what happens on Nairobi's roads starting at 6 a.m. We had been sitting, just sitting, for twenty minutes before I grew anxious.
"I'll walk. I can walk," I said to my driver. He shook his head. "No really. I can do it. I just really need to see these baby elephants."
Arrive at the orphanage just five or ten minutes after 11 a.m. and you are likely to miss one of the most adorable experiences of your life - baby elephant bath time.
