Customer Reviews

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

Had another lovely evening at Tuskers, Noah braaing for us and kept us well supplied with ice etc. Great interaction with the elephants, and Stella really enjoyed her ride. It was the first time she'd ever seen an elephant! Breakfast was excellent - it is a great experience and so near Johannesburg, yet you feel you are in the bush far from the madding crowd! Thanks again to all you lovely people - Hilary Harrison

Awesome experience, loved every second of it. Thank you so much On another note I would like to thank ALL the staff (from the website enquiry to the staff all the way to the guides) in assinting me to make our engagement possible. Would really recommend the elephant sanctuary to anyone. - Vermeulen Pretorius
