Customer Reviews

Good day. I just want to thank you for the excellent service, from the bookings to the staff that greeted us on arrival, and the great experience with the guides and all elephant caregivers. The elephant buildings are clean, the elephants are cared for and they look healthy, which is good to see. It was a great family experience. Would recommend anyone to go there for a visit. Thank you. Kind regards. - Rohan Martin Jansen van Vuuren

It was an experience I will treasure for the rest of my life. The handlers were so professional and friendly. Thank you for the opportunity to interact with these gentle giants so up close and personal. My friend and I truly enjoyed every moment of it and I would recommend it to anyone who loves elephants. - SIMONE LOOSEN

I really enjoyed the day with my daughter at your facility. The staff were great and the animals amazing. I was however very surprised that there were no restaurant / breakfast / lunch facilities. I am sure that other people would also have made use of such a facility if it was available. - Heinrich Sullwald
