Customer Reviews

Elephants and meerkat are my favorite animals and at 58 years old, I had never been closer than an observer from a car in Kruger Park. This was a once in aife time experience which Ill never forget. Our guide (Joe?) was awesome! He was highly professional friendly, knowledgeable, very funny and spoke clearly. Touching the elephants was astonishing! Thank you so much for the whole experience. - James Macaulay

This was one of the most amazing experiences in a life time friendly staff very clean and neat - Cornelis Kuijpers

It was an honor to be able to interact with such amazing beings- to be in the company of the elephants. Thanks for a magnificent experience - Tatjana Raunich

The elephant interaction was one of the best experiences of the entire trip. My daughter said it was her favorite part. The staff were amazing, they made us feel comfortable to be around these gentle giants and they educated us very well on them. Not once did we feel nervous to be around them. The staff gave us their undivided attention and were always there to take videos and answer any questions we had. This was a wonderful experience, I would 100% recommend. - Larry Jaffe

My friend and I had the best time! The guides were a delight and we especially loved spending time with Themba and Khumba. Thank you so much for the experience of a lifetime. We can't wait to visit again! Thank you. - Rinda Beukman
