Excellent. You won't get closer to elephants than this. Touch and ride elephants in a safe and well looked after environment. Knowledgeable and caring staff. Happy looking elephants.

We loved our visit to elephant whispers. The staff was dedicated - especially the owner. We chatted with him at the end of our tour, and mentioned that we were walking back to Hippo Hollow (less than a KM). He did not want us to walk, so he offered us a lift in the back of his bucket - complete... More

Perhaps you noticed from the size of our family dog that she is in intensive training to be part of the Elephant Whispers Herd... Thank you for your lovely (and entertaining) review, we had a good laugh, and blushed a fair bit too! More

A truly great and worthwhile experience for both kids and adults. It certainly gave me a greater understanding and appreciation of elephants. It is one thing seeing them in Kruger and another being up close and touching them. By the way, the being up close and touching them is purely optional. Thanks for providing this experience.

This was our second time to Elephant Whispers and won't be our last. The elephants are so calm and content, the grooms are gentle and caring and this is the way it should be. We had the Ultimate Elephant Experience and our 11 year old was entranced by them all again.

Great place for the kids and if they are interested in elephants. well maintained and reasonably priced. Only if you are interested in the closer contact otherwise, you are near Kruger and can see the beasts in their natural settings there

Thank you for visiting Elephant Whispers and taking the time to post your review. It's amazing how meaning elephant facts become when you can touch, feel, small and hear the elephant close up. And then of course, seeing them in their natural environment completes a great elephant experience. More

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
