Customer Reviews

What a wonderful experience we had. I had friends from the UK who were totally blown away by the interaction with the elephants and the monkeys - they got so much more than they were expecting that is for sure. I had never done any of these things either despite living in Jhb, so my son and I were also just to enthralled with the whole experience and can't stop telling people about it. I do think the advantage was not having so many people in the group, as I had heard negative comments from people saying the group they were in was too big so didn't have as good an experience. Perhaps something to bear in mind? I loved everything about the day - the guides were fantastic, the animals exquisite and the cable car experience was definitely one I will do again. Thank you. - René Swart

Just a very pleasant experience. The staff and guides are exceptionally polite and welcoming to tourists. The entire facility is filled with obviously well cared for animals and this translates to the manner by which the staff rear the animals. After you finish seeing the elephants, why not stop and see the monkies too? It was a great morning and worth every rand. - Joel

What a beautiful experience! We absolutely loved the elephant interaction and monkey sanctuary. The elephants are a true wonder of nature and the monkeys were an absolute delight! The guides were informative and friendly. The cableway experience was a lovely way to end the day although the food prices were quite exorbitant for local travellers. Overall, this is a highly recommended activity and was a wonderful bonding session for my daughter and me. - Rowlene Jantjes

Fantastic! - Gerhard van Niekerk

Despite a somewhat confusing start to the tour (an elephant had escaped earlier in the day), the actual tour was incredible. We each got a chance to pet and feed an elephant, take plenty of pictures with the elephants and then fed a couple other elephants as well. The monkey sanctuary was also very exciting. There were hundreds of monkeys running around and many came very close to us, if not on our shoulders or heads! Be sure to leave all valuables in the lockers outside or the monkeys will try to snag your keys, wallets or cell phones! There is also a very cool hike/walk through the woods and across a really exciting wobbily bridge. After leaving the monkey sanctuary we took a short drive through the town and dam and stopped to take pictures around the dam on our way to the Cableway. The cableway had no line during the day on a weekday in April. There were several nice historical plaques at the top of the mountain along with some spectacular views. I would highly recommend this package for anybody looking for a half day activity while visiting the Johannesburg area. - Randy Meck
