We enjoyed the experience a lot, it was amazing to be so close to those friendly giants and to learn more about them. Thank you very much! We will definitely recommend it. - Piaz Eveline (Guesthouse Dolphin-View)

My husband and I had a great time during our elephant walk and brush experience. The handlers were friendly and knowledgeable and seemed to really care about the animals. - Cornelia

We had an amazing time at the Elephant Sanctuary in Plettenberg Bay. Our family of four included two children and the Brush Down Experience was equally thrilling and engaging for the whole family. Definitely the highlight of our trip to touch and spend time with these beautiful, gentle creatures and their educational keepers. Thank you! - Melissa Berger
