Customer Reviews

A bit expensive, but a great experience! We really enjoyed our interaction with the Elephants. My wife is not so fan of animals, and before going, she was really angry with me for spending so much money on it - she said she preferred me to go only with the children, and she would wait in the car saving the money of her ticket, as she was not willing to do it anyway. But I already reserved and paid it online. After the interaction she was really glad and said it was a wonderful experience. Nothing else to say. - Robinson Andrade da Silva

Both of my bookings ran fantastically. the guides were fantastic and took great pride in their knowledge and talks. the elephants were brilliant and my students had a lovely time. Many thanks for yet another fantastic two visits. thanks Stacey - Derby College / Stacey Higgs

Wat een ervaring. Een aanrader voor iedereen om eens mee te maken. Het was een onvergetelijke excursie. Een super goede ontvangst in een mooie omgeving. Kunnen zien hoe ze met de olifanten werken en daarna zelf zo dicht bij de olifanten staan en ze kunnen aanraken is een hele belevenis voor jong en oud. Vriendelijke mensen die weten waarover ze spreken. Een sterk pluspunt hier is dan ook de prijs. Voor zulke excursie is de prijs/kwaliteit top. Een echte aanrader! - De Wilde Kevin / De Keirsmaeker Petra

Being able to interact and learn about these beautiful, gigantic creatures was a truly special experience. Our guide was friendly, funny and helped take some great pictures while we were up close and personal with the elephants. - Kevin Hutcheson

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
