Elephant Walk 4-Hour Guided Tour from Johannesburg

18 reviews
If you’d love to interact with elephants but find the notion of riding, feeding, or bathing them exploitative, this is the experience for you. Accompanied by a veteran wildlife guide, walk through the African bush with three free-roaming, semi-habituated elephants. Stroll where they stroll, watch them feed, and admire their soft and silent footsteps. Your package includes lunch, water, hot drinks, and round-trip transfer.

I gave this 5 stars because it is so rare and precious to still find a surviving site of REAL history in South Africa as supposed to the politicized gossip going as history these days. See what REALLY happened.

Not too shabby not too exciting. It is history and people who like history and what it presents might get excited but I was not impressed

Sadly the tea garden is no more, not allowing for a more relaxed and leisurely visit which is a great shame. House tour is a must

Not as popular as it used to be for some reason. Went on a Sunday afternoon - had a quite stroll in the garden and somebody came out and told us it was R500 to take photos in the garden! - We left! Staff could really be more friendly and accommodating

We went here with a group of children. We were very surprised at how well preserved the house and contents have been kept. There is maintenance/upkeep work needed but it doesn't distract from what you get to see. You can just imagine living there years ago! They even have great games for the kids to play. A great museum and hghly recommended to visit.
