We just stayed here last week (November 18-19, 2014) and it was a blast! Definitely do the extra tours, Crunch Time and Butch's Bedtime. Well worth the extra money! Feeding the elephants and big cats, and having our breakfast delivered by Malika the elephant, was amazing. The staff were friendly, and knowledgeable, and the tent cabins were nice. It was... More

We visited as a surprise birthday trip for our 11-year-old daughter, who will probably become a veterinarian or zoologist and did the whole experience: B&B, Walk with the Animals (private & personal tour), Butch's Bedtime (help feed dinner to the elephants & escort them to their pens for the night), and Crunchtime (help feed dinner to several wild cats...listen to...

My husband and I just loved it here, we were actually sad to leave. It is elephant heaven! We enjoyed our 2 night stay in tent #3.. very quiet, comfortable and clean. Sitting on our porch viewing the elephants was the best. We especially enjoyed the extra tours given by Kristie and Alex, who were extra kind and informative. It... More

This is the most amazing experience. Not only are the animals incredible to be around and feed, but the bungalows are cozy and comfortable, and the staff are so friendly. My boyfriend and I spent our 5-year anniversary here. We stayed in tent #5 (Zebra Zone - very cool stuff in there and great location on the property) for one... More

Me and my husband went here for our 18 year anniversary. The place is really cool. We brought our own cooler with drinks and sat on the porch and watched the Elephants and other animals in the play yard. At 3:30 they brought a baby bear around to the cabin and at 4:15 they brought a white tiger (SO BEAUTIFUL).... More

Loved it, loved it. Our second stay here was even better than the first. Interaction/Viewing of animals in the afternoon and for breakfast was a unique wonderful experience as usual. .We did the Crunchtime/Elephant Bedtime combo tour this time where we fed the big cats and interacted with the elephants as they put them down for the night. Well worth... More

My husband and I truly enjoyed the night we spent here. The tour was a plus but the wow factor was sitting on our porch and watching the 5 elephants, and friends (2 water buffalo, an ostrich, and a zebra) in their play yard. I didn't want to leave the porch! The largest elephant and the zebra are hilarious together... More

Vision Quest was a wonderful experience. The bungalows were very comfy and had great amenities. We were comfortable and had a great view of the elephant, zebra, buffalo exhibit too. To add to this awesome trip, my bf chose to propose to me during the elephant bedtime. He asked me to be his in front of Butch, a 10 thousand... More

Had a great visit! The tent cabins are exactly like the tents in Africa! The beds were comfortable with heated blankets! Breakfast was delivered by an elephant. Fun to feed and touch the elephant! This was a great escape!
