Customer Reviews

It was a very special experience. We were fortunate to have the elephants all to ourselves. The guide and caretakers are working so well with the elephants, we could see they really care about them and enjoy their work. - Lane Conradie

Excellent Everyone thoroughly enjoyed every minute Would go every day if possible - Simon lewis

The most amazing experience ever!! Id go again without thinking twice! - LETICIA MARIA MORGADO RODRIGUES

It was a super, special experience. The tour guide was fantastic and the handlers were wonderful with their charges. - Aileen Kennaugh

I had an amazing time. Riding the elephant felt to be a bit of a disappointment for the price one pays. Too short and just walking in a circle . But it is stated this isn't a safari ride and the idea is not to domesticate the elephant but to rehabilitate them so it is better if less people do this. But all the rest I enjoyed, brushing, feeding, touching. It would've been nice if we were able to go see the big Elephant. - Charl Theron
