Customer Reviews

A lovely experience, and very interesting. We have not received our video yet. Thanks. Shirley Dunkley - S Dunkley


I think the sanctuary itself is beautiful and appears to be well run. The elephants are magnificent and I enjoyed the whole experience immensely. I do wish I had more time with the elephants and that it was more of an experience instead of just a photo opportunity. I did feel a little rushed in that respect. - Angie Tjimis


Very much enjoyed our time with these intelligent and compassionate creatures. The staff was very welcoming and we enjoyed our brief time there very much l. Next trip, all day!! - Richard Gillard


A great experience - Ursula Brandenberger


On the 7th of October 2019 me and my family joined the staff at the Hazyview Elephant Sanctuary for a brushdown. Amongst others, our guide Trinity showed and explained to us how the elephants live, how they are treated and thought us about their anatomy. It was educational, very impressive and most of all intimate. Both the elephants (Kasper and Kitso) were both gigantic and gentle. We never felt unsafe due to the elephants keepers. You can see that the animals are respected and treated well. An absolute recommendation for anyone in the area. We will be back. Thanks and take care. - Bas van der Kolk
