The Elephant Sanctuary 

We have African elephants and offers an interactive Africa elephant experience. We offer hands-on educational elephant interactions. This provides our guests with a far more intimate experience with the elephants. Our dedicated staff is committed to the use of positive reinforcement elephant training methods and as a result, we have relaxed elephants who enjoy interacting with our guests.

Elephant Tour Overview

Guests are guided on foot through The Elephant Sanctuary. Guides will provide in-depth information and insight into African elephants. You will be introduced to our elephants in the forest area, and here you will be able to touch and interact with the elephants. You will see the special relationship that the elephant handlers share with their elephants and become a part of it.

Walk trunk-in-hand with the elephants. See the Elephant Night Shelter where the elephants sleep. Guests learn about elephant anatomy and are able to feed them. On some hot or rainy days, you may see the elephants swimming. Enjoy a drink and visit our curio shop. Remember to wear flat walking shoes, sun hats and bring your camera.

Brushing the elephants down is offered on the Elephant Brush down Experience Tour. We offer various tours depending on the duration and intensity of experience you desire.
