Our dedicated staff are 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 packages 

Elephant Interaction Program:
7 days a week, at 08h00; 10h00 and 14h00

Guests are guided on foot through The Elephant Sanctuary. Our well-informed guides will provide you with in-depth information and insight about African Elephants! You will meet, face-to-face, these gentle giants and experience their warm breath and their unique trunks while feeding them. Take a walk with these majestical giants and appreciate them in their natural habitat.

You will get to interact with our elephants and touch them all over their uniquely created body parts, from the front to the back. Here you will meet the Caretakers, where you can appreciate and become part of the special, trusting relationship they share with our elephants. You will also learn so many more interesting facts about the unique way elephants are created and formed in the Anatomy area. We want you to be well informed and become ambassadors for all the Elephant Species in a world that needs your protection.

Remember to wear flat walking shoes, sun hats, and bring your camera.

The 08h00 session includes assisting the Caretakers with the morning brushing down of the elephants.
