Customer Reviews

We had an absolutely awesome experience. Loved every minute of it. Would highly recommend it - Tracey Ridgway

Very Good The Guest Loved it - Funtime Tours

Riding on an elephant's back was a great and scary experience. We learnt a lot about the 2 elephants kept at the sanctuary and elephants, in general. It was very interesting to do all of this with people from different countries e.g. France, Italy and I think Australia... My clan name is Ndlovu, which means elephant. So, it felt like I was bonding with my kind, somehow. Thanks for the lovely experience. - Thobeka Daki

A very enjoyable experience. The guides had a lot of knowledge and answered our questions easily, as well as taking excellent photos for us. We had a wonderful time. Thank you. - Catherine Savage

I enjoyed everything. Thanks you. - Tiny maake
