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

Just want to thank Elephant whispers for the most enjoyable experience. The information that is given about the elephants is AMAZING. I would recommend anyone to go there and see it for them selves.

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

Part of our vacation package to Kruger was a trip to Elephant Whispers. After spending time there, we must admit it was incredible. The first part of the experience was meeting and learning about Tembo. Not only is he a gentle giant, he was the perfect gentleman as roughly 30 people fed, touched and had their pictures taken with him.... More

We had two experiences riding and interacting with elephants on our trip to Southern Africa. The first was an "elephant back safari" in Zimbabwe, near Victoria Falls. The second was at Elephant Whispers. The Zimbabwe experience was okay, but the Elephant Whispers experience was really, really phenomenal. Really, don't miss it. And if you have an opportunity to stay at... More
