Customer Reviews

Excellent, interesting and special experience with very informative and passionate tour guides. We absolutely loved it! - Liora Meltzer


An unforgettable experience. our guides made it lovely, thank you. - Sonika Nel


Very Good Thank you very much - Oliver Stegmaier


This was a truly African, amazing, up-there, professional, once-in-lifetime experience. We loved every moment of it. Informative tour and your chance to walk with the giants. My 5 year old son loved it as well and was brave enough to also walk on his own with Thandi, one of the elephants. - Sumari Coetzee


This was the most incredible experience I have ever had. Andy, our guide, gave us so much information that we never even knew and made us feel so welcome and excited for what was to come. It was so lovely to hear where the beautiful elephants had come from and how they found a safe home at the sanctuary. It was such a hands-on experience walking with the elephants through the bush, touching and feeling them like I never imagined was possible. We throughly enjoyed every minute and it is definitely something that will stay with us forever. I would definitely want to come again one day. - Leoni Hurter
