Customer Reviews

My wife and I enjoyed the elephant experience very much. We came away extremly fortunate to have interacted with them and found the facility excellent. The staff that took the tour and the elephant handlers where excellent also, they gave a great insite to the elephant and where great at taking photos on our behalf and extremly friendly and wanted us to enjoy our experience which we did very much Regards Shane - Shane Osborn

Our group of 14 had a wonderful time at the Elephant Sanctuary. Getting to touch these gentle giants and stroll along with Trunk in hand was a great experience. We learned a lot of interesting things about elephants during our visit. We were so glad to be able to support such important work --the preservation of elephants. Thank you! - Born To Travel Born To Travel - Mary Ann

It was very fantastic. - christine Kairo

We enjoyed our visit. Our guide was funny and very informative. It was great to be able to touch the elephants, walk with them, and ride them. The handlers were also very good. You could see how much they care for the animals...it is more than just a job for them. We will recommend this to others. - Tim Timmons

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
