Customer Reviews

A wonderful and educational experience to be so up close and personal! Thanks to the wonderful guides! Our overseas visitor loved the visit! - Lynne Hopkins

Very professionally organised. The whole venue in mint condition. Kids enjoyed the experience and guides were well informed and very pleasant and also assisted with taking great photos. Shop and coffee shop both an added bonus with interesting souvenirs available. All in all a great experience. - Francois Meyer

The guides /handlers where great and most informative.It was amazing to watch the seamless way they changed according to the mood of the elephants. Thank you all for taking care of our wildlife. - Dawn Gawthorope

Amazing experience. The staff were very friendly and we moved around in small groups which made the interaction feel like a more exclusive experience. Learnt a lot of scientific facts on elephants. Attention: make sure you either ask your taxi driver to wait or go there with your own car, Uber or Taxify coverage in that area is VERY limited. - selven saminathen

Brought an international guest who thoroughly enjoyed it. Highly recommended! - Gary Taylor
