Customer Reviews

An absolutely amazing experience. Loved the interaction with the elephants, would highly recommend this to anyone. The staff was extremely kind and friendly. A big thank you for the most incredible experience. Shantal Shrikissoon. - Shantal Shrikissoon

The meeting with the elephants was an incredible living experience and was well organized by your structure. Indeed, touching the elephants leads to an interesting meeting with them and stays uncommun. The elephant back ride is very good but too short. The team is very welcoming and stay tuned for us. - PENON PHILIPPE

Hi Guys, I think it was a once in a life time experience. The staff was very professional, curteuos and knowledgeable. It was a pleasure visiting you and I can now tick this off my Bucket List. I want to thank you again for having Casper hand over the gift to my dad. He was very surprised and will always remember that moment. Send our regards to the team. Kind regards Oliver Oppenberg - Oliver Oppenberg

Great family experience! We all loved it and are still talking about it and enjoying (all) the photos!! Thank you xx - Audrey Brynes

We hesitated to participate in this elephant sanctuary. It was unclear whether this was a circus act or whether this elephants were rescued. After reading the reply mail from about the saving of these elephants we decided to participate. The elephants were clearly well cared for. After a long and boring introduction about elephants one by one we all could touch an elephant. That was a fantastic experience. Next was the hand-in-trunk walk. Two persons at a time walked a round, followed by an elephant. The elephants trunk gripped our hand. That was also a wonderful experience. We all got to thank the elephants by giving them a lot of food pellets. Afterwards we got to ride the elephant, 2 persons per elephant. WOW, what a magnificent animal and WOW what a SUPER experience!! The guides helped take pictures an everybody got enough time to get to know an elephant. 95 out of 100! - Erik van Pomeren
