The Elephant Sanctuary, started in 1999 and grew from five elephants to a total of twelve African Elephants. These Elephants have been domesticated through positive reinforcement and as a result, provide guests with the unique opportunity to interact with them. Visitors are taken on a journey into the world of the African elephant and are guided through an unforgettable experience with these magnificent creatures, with a special opportunity to touch, feed and get to know them.
The sanctuary is unique in that it offers visitors the opportunity to walk hand-in-trunk with the elephants and ride them bare-back. Experiences,tours and programmes are offered daily, allowing guests to discover the different characters, personalities and temperaments of the elephants.
For visitors wishing to extend their visit accommodation is available in the form of Tuskers B&B Guest Lodge, a luxury 4 star bed and breakfast venue in a scenic bush setting.
