It was fantastic.All my friends from Holland also enjoyed it and all the information we got about the elephants was excellent. My 10 year old did her oral at school about the elephant walk trunk in hand, she show the video and she got top marks, thanks to all the info and her experience.

Katharina Brock

Thank you for the lovely experience with the elephants. What impressed us the most is how each animal has come from a difficult situation and is being trained to survive on its own again within its new family. It gave us a new respect for the sanctuary. I will be back for a rubdown session and/or ride.


Great place to spend some time and walk with Elephants. Lovely to see that you do not have the ele's do any 'un-natural' tricks, and only things that are natural to them - shaking their head, trumpeting etc. Thoroughly enjoyed our visit

Penelope Tuffey

We all enjoyed our experience. The handlers are very knowledgeable and very safety conscious. The elephants were gorgeous.
