Activity Description

This is our Elephant Interaction program that can be booked for 08h00, 10h00, 13h00 or 15h00.

On this program you will be guided to the Elephant Night Shelters where they spend their night, learn about their history, back ground and diet. After this you will be educated on the Internal Anatomy of Elephants.

This will be followed by an Interaction in the forest, where you will get the opportunity to touch the Elephants and the guides will give you more information about them.

After the interaction you will take a Trunk in Hand Walk with an Ellie for a distance of 40-50 meters. At end of the program you will reward them with food that we supply.

Customer Reviews

I absolutely loved the whole experience and it was extremely educational! I loved the fact that the elephants look so well looked after. Very neat and tidy where they sleep which was good to see. Keep up the good work! - Amelia Vorster


Excellent experience - Jason Narayan


Lovely and exciting experience, got to walk, touch and feed the elephants - Lisa R


Excellent experience. Was amazing to learn about these animals and see them close up. I’m usually not a fan of zoos and places where they keep animals in captivity, but these 2 elephants looks healthy and well looked after, and I think they have a much better life than they would’ve had. Was really great. - Jaco Meyer


Once in a lifetime experience! The memories linger! I was fortunate that we had booked a holiday close to Hazyview for my Son's visit from Australia and he has been wanting to visit the Elephant sanctuary for years, so it worked out perfectly, plus I have the photo's and memories of his visit to last a lifetime. The video we purchased was so well made and we love the music - so South African, just as we are!! The staff were very knowledgeable and such lovely people - some interesting facts that dispel the myths - and they seemed to genuinely care for the Elephants. The sanctuary itself is so beautiful - but to beat it all the amazing ELEPHANTS, Kitso and Kasper! What a privilege to have the opportunity to be so close and to touch them and have their presence all around us. When ever I have the opportunity, I will visit again and again... Thank you so very much!!! Best regards Glenda and Duran - Glenda
