“Walking with the elephants”
Reviewed August 24, 2012

I liked it that before interacting with the elephants one of the guides will tell you important facts about these amazing elephants. Sad stories too about how they try to survive in this crazy world full of aggressive humans and their awful huge cities. Touching the elephants and walking with them is an unforgettable experience.

“Informative and exciting”

It was thrilling and memorable to interact with these rescued elephants. The staff are friendly and professional so we felt in safe hands. The kids loved riding on the elephants - an experience of a lifetime.

“Very instructive and entertaining if a little pricey”
Reviewed August 9, 2012

Lots of contact time with the elephants preceded by interesting talk from one of the guides, but I thought it a little pricey by S African standards (R1,125 for an adult and a child) for a couple of hours' visit

“Wonderful experience”
Reviewed August 2, 2012

I visited the sanctuary with a group of about 10 others & we all had an excellent time. We were able to touch & feed the elephants, before going on a ride through the ground for about 30 minutes. The staff were very gentle with the elephants & happy to share their knowledge with us. A great experience & a wonderful opportunity to learn into how intelligent & beautiful these animals are.
