This is our second visit. We had visited previously with our nearly 3 year old and then very young younger daughter. The previous trip made such an impression on the eldest, so decided to visit again with our daughters 4 and 6. We all thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The staff are amazing and the elephants incredible.
Thank you for all the work you do, and in the words of the 4 year old… best day ever.

I had a beautiful interactive experience with these magnificent animals. Whilst I loved the interactive time, it was just amazing to be quite and wander through the bush with them and observe them in their natural environment. The guides are great, funny and incredibly knowledgeable about the elephants in their care.

Very breathtaking experience. Sad to know that these beautiful creatures are more & more pushed at the edge of so much possible space in our beautiful nature.

Very nice to see the dedication & commitment of Sean, his family & the handlers.

The booking went not exactly as expected yet it is done by a external company & Sean will address it.

The introduction of the elefants, the educational part & the walk with the gentle giants was well handled by Oscar. Although being arround elephants prior to this event & having some knowledge about their behavior & species, we learned other interesting details and facts.

There are no words to describe the beauty and elegance of these elephants. We really enjoyed every minute of it & we're so glad we came.
What unforgettable moments we had with those dear friends of ours, the elephants.

Awesome adventure for our 32nd Anniversary. It was a Lifelong dream to interact and walk with Elephants. Thank you to Manager SEAN HENSMAN and his staff. Sean personally communicated with us during our initial enquiry and was on hand to welcome us on arrival. Great personal package put together for our special day. The Elephant SPA was the ultimate highlight and would recommend it to every one. The Photos received afterwards was professional and plenty to choose from for our personal Album. Well worth the money and great lifetime memories. Well done to the whole team, it was money well spend.

Not enough words to describe our best couples experience ever. And the staff are so friendly and loving towards the elephants they are most definitely one very big happy family. Education on the elephants was astonishing to say the least.
