A really great visit, learnt how they trained them, had a kiss and a ride on an elephant. They are wonderful gentle giants. Would highly recommend a visit.

When you come to Hazyview you have to go to Elephant Whispers - get close up to Elephants and gain a better understanding of these gentle giants - I cannot stay away from the place

Very informative presentation and plenty of opportunity to ineract with the ellies. We were unable to pre-book to ride, but a fellow Rhodie works there and he arranged for us to go on Tembo.
