Customer Reviews

Very good experience,well worth the money.The 2 elephants seem to be well cared for.Very informative staff. - Mrs Yvonne Parr

It was my first experience of just touching an elephant. An amazing creature. The handlers and all the staff members were very friendly. Very good in doing what they do. - Zwoitwaho Nevhutalu

It was absolutely fantastic and worth the money. The girls had a fear of these big beautiful beasts and I made it our 2017 goalpost - "get rid of fear" and this was the perfect way to do it. Then there is Murray which turned 83 and for him it was an absolute amazing experience to interact with these gentle giants. The perfect business year-end function with lifelong memories. I have to add that I was concerned about the way the animals are treated, but realised as soon as we entered the stables that these animals are loved and cared for and the staff very professional and treated the animals with respect which is extremely important to us all. Highly recommended. - Lucille van Oene

I had the best time of my life, still can't get over the experience. My tour guide Chris and his team did a wonderful job, they took turns in taking me pictures which came out very nice.Thank you for a great time.Keep up the good work!! - Andile Hlongwa

It was a great experience. I never touched an elephant before, and it was really amaizing to come in so close contact to such a huge animal. Thanks very much for this opportunity!!! - Kirsten Bünger
