The two young ladies, from the United States had an awesome time. It was on their bucket list when coming to Africa to ride and elephant. The experience they had at the Elephant Sanctuary far outweighed their expectations, and they will recommend the experience to any other visitor - Boss Safaris & Outfitters Pty Ltd, 302 Virginia Str, Pretoria 0181
