Opinions On Elephant Interaction

What the locals say about Elephant Interaction.

Lynette Paxton

It was the second time I have been. I enjoyed myself immensely, but personally would have liked to have spent more time interacting with the elephants, but understand that our group was very large. The first time I went, there were only two of us, so we had more time with the elephants themselves, and also went into their stables, brushed them and walked them for longer, etc, etc. Keep up the good work! Kind regards, Lynette

First of all i want to thank the Elephants for one great show, the trip was one that i only can say 'money well spend'. As for a end year function and trying to keep everybody happy this was def one of the best experienced events that we ever has been on. Your guides are of the best and they really have the skills and patients with these gentle giants, all the staff were extremely friendly and the lunch was very good . You will really see us again.Thank you.
