I visited your Sanctuary with Visitors from Switzerland, and they were impressed by the elephants as well as by the huge knowlege of your guide. Thanks a lot for a beautyful tour. - Gubert Capaul


Walking hand-in-trunk with Casper was one of the highlights of our two-week south African trip. What a majestic animal and wonderful sanctuary you have in Hazyview. They handlers were so kind and well educated about the elephants. We came away feeling we had a new insight into their behavior and life cycle. - Patty Nowak


I absolutely loved it! We had 32 people in our group and to my knowledge everyone truly enjoyed it. I will definitely be back and I am sure many of the people who were would me. Special thank you to Innocent. And of course everyone else that facilitates the program. Thank you for facilitating that experience. Dora - Dora
