Unbelievable! The staff and tour was just perfect. I have recommended it to everyone I know. - Blake Goosen

The Guide and Handlers have truly made my blind mother's experience of the elephants a memorable one for her. I thank you all very much for this. I believe every blind and visually impaired person, young and old, should discover at least once in a lifetime the magnificance of elephants through touch, smell and hearing. - Cheryl Delport

It was an amazing and unique experience! Congrats for your jog, infrastructure and great staff!! - Guilherme Claudio
