We were picked up early in the morning at our hotel by a wonderful guide, Norman. The trip was extremely pleasant, Norman is a wealth of knowledge! He went out of his way to make sure we got the most out of our visit, even treating us to an extra visit with the Meerkats, one of my favorite animals! He even stopped off at a grocery store for us on the way back to our hotel!
We learned a lot about South Africa from Norman and visiting the sanctuary was a dream come true for me. There really are no words to describe the feeling that overcame me upon interacting with the elephants. I was so thrilled to see these majestic creatures being so cared for, knowing they had been rescued.
It was also so heart-warming to see monkeys who had been kept as pets and working animals having the chance to live almost normal lives in a natural environment.
It is true that Africa gets in your blood and I hope to go back some day.

Dear Deborah and Joanne, Many thanks for the great review of your day tour to the Elephant and Monkey Sanctuary. It was indeed my pleasure to have been able to spend the day with you and enjoyed our time spent together. I am pleased to know that you enjoyed the rest of your time in South Africa and had a great tour. As I said to you, once Africa gets into your soul, there is no way of getting it out. You will be back. Kind regards – Norman.

Personalized Day Trip To Elephant Sanctuary and More
Feb 2019 • Friends
From the initial email communication to the guided day trip Mmilo Tours exceeded all my expectations. The response time was quick and Norman our Guide was friendly, personable and very knowledgable about the area. We had a private car pick up at our hotel (3 ladies who where on a mission trip), comfortable drive to the Elephant Sanctuary where Norman helped us locate our guide and then waited while we had our two hour tour...which I would highly recommend, then we went to a local market, small lion cub experience and then lastly lunch at a safari park. All of these suggestions where from Norman after he heard our desires!!!! Amazing Day!!
