Customer Reviews

Great experience!! All staff members were very professional and friendly! - Wimpie de Klerk


Great experience !!! - Sébastien Gabel


Guide Very knowledgeable and passionate about Elephants. Awed by power and intelligence of these magnificent creatures. Interaction unexpectedly humbling. - Peter Large


We had a wonderful morning at the Hazyview Elephant Sanctuary. First they were very helpful in changing our reservation when we did not arrive in South Africa as scheduled. The presentation was very informative. Each person in our group got to touch and learn about the elephants. The best part was walking hand in trunk with a huge elephant right behind you. We also enjoyed riding the elephants. Truly a very educational and unique experience. - Pamela Lee


An outstanding experience. Me and my partner spent the whole time beaming from ear to ear. The handlers were amazing and observing the relationships they had with the elephants was almost as good as walking with the elephants. The knowledge imparted on this trip, alongside the memories created are truly incredible. Thank you! - Kirsty Hensleigh
