Customer Reviews

What a fantastic experience We absolutely loved everything about it Highly recommend anyone to go and enjoy it. - Matthew Williams


Our guides were very professional and funny......we had a great day. Would highly recommend your sanctuary to anyone interested in interacting with elephants. - Paul Louw


We had the most magical day . The guide was very informative and each of the handlers were also keen to help you gain as much information and interaction with their elephant. This is a must do experience. - Rosie Harris


We had a wonderful time at the elephant experience. I love elephants and sponsor 7 at the Sheldrick sanctuary in Nairobi. So, to see these wonderful animals close up again left a lasting impression on all of my family. The highlight was the ride. The keepers are very informative and friendly and some were from my original Country - Zimbabwe so we interacted even better. Keep this up as many people should benefit from the experience. - Miles Clarke


We enjoyed getting close to the elephants and it was good that they now have a secure home after their previous hardships. The only negative comment is that we felt that the additional amount that you charge for having a ride at the end of the tour is excessive. It is a huge difference in price between including the ride and not including it. Nevertheless, the tour was a great experience for us. - Donald LEE
