As numbers of elephants have decreased by some 350% in the last 70 years and by 110 000 elephants in the last ten years (Great Elephant Census) due to poaching and habitat loss, we are honoured to have saved a few. We are even more thrilled to be able to connect you with Elephants through our unique interactions, so that you might see them for what they are, and therefore think a little bit more about their future, and indeed many other species, in an ever changing and modernising Africa.
Meet our herd of elephants and learn all about them from trunk tip to tail, as well as their unique personalities, abilities, intelligence, quirks etc. You’ll get to meet all the elephant’s and learn all about them in a wonderful immersive educational experience.
This experience only available if you do the Elephant Interaction experience. You will have the opportunity to spend some of our Gentle Giants in the water while brushing & bathing them (with a bit of splashing thrown in).
Head out with the herd after the interaction to spend a little more time getting to know them a lot better! Here you’ll see the wild side of the elephants as they free-range feed, frolic, drink, dustbathe and enjoy the 300-hectare wildlife reserve.
Take a break and have a Zoom call with our elephants! Perfect for a team build for corporates who have staff working from home, schools, families and even just yourself if you looking to learn more about these wonderful animals.

I can't explain in words the feeling to be so close and touch and interact with these majestic animals,Amazing , Awesome , Unreal does not even compare. The most important thing is that these are elephants that was rescued from certain death,They are not wild elephants tamed for monetary purposes.
