Elephant Whispers INTERACTIVE EXPERIENCES

We extend a warm and welcoming invitation to come meet our gentle elephants; engage with them, learn about their complex family structure and unique physiology and simply enjoy the privilege of spending time with them. We offer various activities to cater for different ages, interests and time available. Please note that bookings are necessary, as we don’t offer all the activities every day to ensure that the elephants have plenty of rest, relaxation and feeding time.

JUST FABULOUS – GENTLE, KIND AND LOVING – GOOD FOR THE SOUL – YOU MUST GO

Please read on – I did not leave and even went back for a full day – I love this place, it is good for the soul.
