Customer Reviews

It was great!! - Francien Sterkeboer


We participated in the early morning brush down. At first we were skeptical as we we afraid that this may be a tourist trap. It was not. The staff were most welcoming and very friendly. We were taken back by their passion and knowledge. The education session was very interesting and we learned a lot about elephants. I would highly recommend the Elephant Sanctuary - Marc


Visit was well organized and our guide was very good. The elephants seemed happy to meet us and though intimidating, let us be closer than expected, quite good. I would recommend the same combination to any who ask. Thank you - Patrick Whelan


What a special experience for our family !!! Staff is very friendly - Juanita Botha


It is the first time that we interacted with elephants and we simply loved it - a truly magical experience. Kasper and Kitso were very majestic and accommodating, the guides were very knowledgeable and helpful, the setting was perfect. We really could not have asked for anything more - Thank you!! P.S. If you have not yet been, you simply must do it! - Sharon & Carl Smorenburg
