“Absolutely amazing.”
Reviewed April 17, 2013 via mobile

A magical experience that we will never forget. Incredible surroundings with excellent hosts, we were invited to meet the six beautiful elephants that are lovingly cared for whilst learning about their history. We had an opportunity to get up close, feed, pet and learn all about how these amazing creatures grow. We chose to have the extended experience of having a ride which was fabulous and well worth doing; it would be a shame not to include this in your visit. The staff were incredibly hospitable, took our cameras to take lots of photos for us whist we enjoyed our experience. Thank you to everyone at Elephant Whispers, most certainly a place I will recommend to any travellers to South Africa.

“A big thank you!”
Reviewed April 14, 2013

We went with our two teenage children and had booked the interaction, elephant ride and lunch. On arrival we were greeted by Keith who explained all about the elephants and how this place came about. Some 25 minutes into the interaction the rain started and it became near on impossible to continue. We were offered the chance to come back the following day to do it again which we did. The experience was something else, fascinating facts about he elephants and the chance to be up close and personal was a once in a lifetime opportunity. Great photos and to ride the elephants was just awesome. Thank you Keith. This will be remembered by my wife and I and the kids forever.
