The Heart of Who We Are... OUR ELEPHANTS

We embrace the individual quirks and distinctive personalities of each of our elephants, they make up the wonderful whole; the Elephant Whispers’ Herd.

The strength of the elephant’s bonds with each other, with the team and with guests in need, is incredibly moving, and often very humbling.

Individual - Connect - Belong
