This place is amazing! Our cabin, The Zebra Zone, was fantastic! Comfy bed, lovely furniture, fridge stocked with water and juice, and of course breakfast delivered by an 11,000 pound elephant!! You even got to feed him his breakfast! Awesome!!! Took the tour (included with your stay) and loved it. Also did the Big Cat Crunchtime and the bedtime for... More

We stayed in bungalow 8 and highly recommend it, because it had a great view of the elephant play area and was served breakfast first. We also signed up for the elephant bedtime and big cat feeding combo which was very cool. We want to come back someday and do the full contact tour when we have kids, as I... More

We came here to celebrate our anniversary, and were left speechless by our stay. Everything was wonderful. We paid to stay the night in Josephs Jungle (cabin 6) it was secluded, private and clean. The amenities of the cabin were great. A shower, a double sink in the bathroom. King size bed with a heated mattress pad. Fit for a... More

I was very misled by this place. Online there are pictures of elephants roaming around by these bungalows. The only time you get to see an elephant up close is when it comes by anywhere from 9:30-10:30 in the morning. The elephant doesn't do anything with breakfast so I am not sure why this couldn't be delivered at an earlier... More

We always regret when a visitor feels misled and when reading such reviews, we do our best to revisit our website which this visitor clearly visited, to determine if there was any other way to better represent our product. In this case unfortunately, we fail to see how we could have addressed these complaints any better than we have. Our... More

This is a must do for anyone who wants a personalized experience with animals especially if there is a elephant lover in your family. We spent our 25th anniversary here. Check in was easy, our safari hut was perfectly themed for our elephant experience. We stayed in the "pachyderm palace. the first night we enjoyed putting Butch to bed and... More

We couldn't believe this existed so close to home and we never knew. The experience of being so close to the elephants was amazing. We will return if only to sit on a deck or overlook and watch the interactions between the elephants, water buffalo, silly ostrich and jasmin, the zebra! The bungalows were roomy and comfortable, altho' # 1... More

We just came back from our getaway at Vision Quest Safari. The cabin was very inviting. We were able to watch the superbowl and even heard the lions roared in disappointment at the last call while in our cabin! Had a full bathroom with hot shower, cold fridge, coffee maker, TV, space heater, electric blankets and great bed! Everything was... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here in August last year and we loved it! We stayed in the big cat house, it was decorated nicely, and surprisingly luxurious for a tent! The bed was so comfy and cosy and the occasional lion roaring in the night made it even more special! Wish we had of stayed more than one night... More

I was planning to treat my self for graduating from College, but ended up getting lucky to plan for my birthday with my boyfriend Mike to stay a night and get the full on experience to meet a Elephant up close and personal. I enjoyed feeding theme carrots, apples, and oranges. Seeing how amazing smart they are and watching them... More
