ELEPHANT SANCTUARY -

8 am & 10 am (morning) elephant educational program. Guests are guided in small groups on foot through The Elephant Sanctuary. Guides will provide in-depth information and insight into African elephants. You are introduced to our elephants in the forest area, where you can touch and interact with the elephants. You can see the special relationship that the handlers share with their elephants and become a part of it, forming your own relationship and bond with the elephants.


This is followed by a short trunk-in-hand walk with the elephants. You walk through the elephant night sleeping stables to get an insight, regarding elephant husbandry and the keeping of elephants in captivity. Guests also learn about the animals’ anatomy and feed them. If you are lucky and it’s a hot day, you may even see the elephants swimming. You can enjoy a drink from the cash bar on the main deck before departure. Pre-booked lunches are served on the deck overlooking the elephant enclosure. Flat walking shoes, sun hats and sun screen recommended, and remember to bring cameras.
