Customer Reviews

My wife absolutely LOVES Elephants and before we left the UK I booked this experience for her Birthday. The entire experience from start to finish was nothing short of outstanding!!! Our thanks must go to all the amazing handlers who look after these Elephants but we must pick out one name for a special mention. That name is Sami our guide - without a doubt he made the whole morning special and he put you at the focal point with the Elephants at all times. This visit will stay with us forever and we have many fantastic pictures along with the DVD produced on the day. We will be visiting South Africa again and we will definitely make a point of returning to see the Elephants and everyone involved with them. Thank you for making my wife’s Birthday present extra special. - John Millbank

It was a wonderful experience, we had lots of fun! Will recommend it for everyone! - Katelynn Labonte

The experience was absolutely amazing! Both my my wife and I felt emotionally drained afterwards. Elephants are gentle giants and it was a privilege to spent time with them. In addition, the handlers and guides take their work and responsibility very seriously. They also made sure that all our memories are captured. Money well spent and something I will recommend to anyone. - Suna de Villiers
