    Sheldrick Orphanage is a great place to visit. And they do great work for elephants and other wild animals. Amazing!
    The local restaurant was a real experience and the food was tasty.
    I also enjoyed Ocean Sole. They also do a great job by recycling flipflops. My niece love the elephant I bought there for her. 🙂
    All in all, it was a great trip. I can highly recommend.
