Customer Reviews

We had a lovely experience at the Elephant Sanctuary. A huge thanks to your well informed tour guides. We had a lovely and very informative time! - Melanie Matthysen

OUTSTANDING experience! It was amazing to have close contact with the elephants. Thank you for the opportunity to experience this; I will most definitely be recommending your sanctuary. Its clear the keepers care for the Elephants and have a mutual trust relationship. - Tracey hillier

This is the second time I've enjoyed this truly wonderful experience and the 8th time I've sent my overseas visitors for the experience. Not once have I, or any of my overseas family been disappointed. Its a truly magical experience to be close to these amazing mammals, especially walking "hand in trunk". One of my family was moved to tears by the experience. Highly recommended as an encounter with magnificent animals. - Karen Oosthuyse
