Customer Reviews

I loved interacting with the elephants and getting to feed, touch and walk with them. The next time I am in town I will definitely be coming back here. - Tshegofatso Taole

Was an absolutely lovely experience. Easy booking. The staff are amazing, the tour guide Charles is very informative and the handlers...wow, you can see the bond they have with the elephants - amazing. The elephants themselves, such amazing animals and to be able to have the close interaction is more than you could wish for, you get to see that these huge animals are really gentle giants. My 8 year old son finally got to realise the immense size of the animals and to be able to touch them, he realised how soft they are. And to look into their eyes- powerful!!! Great experience and well worth the money - knowing and seeing the work that is involved - really good job the sanctuary is doing. - Elchanet Don
