We visited Elephant Whispers whilst on our Honeymoon in South Africa. We opted to do the "Ultimate Elephant Experience". This began with a talk about the elephants who were patiently stood behind the host in a line of 6. He gave the elephants commands to follow and it was fascinating to see that they could follow so many instructions. We... More

Elephant Whispers was an extraordinary experience! We learned a fortune about elephants in an entertaining and interactive way. The staff were incredibly professional, spoke quickly and professionally while giving over a lot of information in an understandable way. The information was relevant and interesting and far from boring. Riding the elephants was absolutely breathtaking and our whole visit was an... More

We visited the camp with our 4 grandchildren and 2 daughters and had a delightful time learning about elephants and were so impressed with their intelligence and training. The ride and opportunities for pictures were excellent, so we have great memories. I would highly recommend a visit to Elephant Whispers.

Yesterday 21.07.2014 we visited Elephant Whispers. It was a great experience. We learned a lot of the African Elephant. They do a really good job at Elephant Whispers. Our kids were able to feed the elephant. Our favorite is Tembo!!!, This is a must do when you visit Hazyview Mpumalanga. Go see yourself!!!

Impressive to see what elephants can do, impressive to learn all what they do and can do. Impressive to see the passion from people in charge and presenting this who have made everything possible to transfer their passion into something that doesn't turn into a bad commercial experience. A must view

The Ellies are so beautiful and well treated - no cruelty. The tour is so educational, I would recommend parents to take their children to experience this close contact with these beautiful creatures. Adults - we were blown away.

An awesome and amazing couple of hours were spent at Elephant Whispers learning about these gentle giants. We LOVED the interaction with the elephants!!Being able touch an elephant from trunk to tail while it laid quietly on the ground was awesome. We also fed, rode and had photos taken with the elephants, using our camera and taken by the staff.... More
