Customer Reviews

Great experience - we have visited many times and enjoyed the facilities. Everything is very clean & tidy, shop & cafe good and of course the elephants are the stars along with the keepers :) - Wendy Ward

What a truly amazing experience! - Tanya

Awesome experience interacting with the elephants. Everything was well planned and the guide (sorry I forgot his name) was very entertaining. Beautiful venue! - Megan Knipe

The guides were great, very friendly and put us at ease. I enjoyed the experience as a whole and hope that the elephants do get time to roam around in the bush instead of being in the "yard" (which is what I looked like where the feeding and trunk-in-hand walk/riding was done) for extended periods of the day. The sanctuary facilities were wonderful though. Thank you. - Sarah Korlaki

Nice, obedient elephants, great scenario - very kind and knowledgeble staff. I suggest everyone to go and see - it is a lifetime experience. - Agnes Risko
