We were amazed by being in the presence of these gentle giants. The experience was so full of richness and learning. We enjoyed the elephant ride and felt blessed to meet them all. A well run facility doing great things for 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.

An informative, fun and touching interaction with the elephants. Staff are very welcoming and give great service. It was lovely to sit in the deck afterwards watching the elephants drinking at the dam:)

This is something I have always wanted to do, but always found it over-priced and ended putting it off. While away for a weekend for our wedding anniversary we drove past 'Adventures with Elephants' and I immediately Googled and noticed the price was in my budget. So on our way back home, we stopped off and ended up having the most amazing experience ever. The staff are amazing and clearly quite passionate about caring for the Ellies. And then ofcourse the stars of the show, the beautiful and incredibly talented Elephants. Words can't really explain how special it was and so grateful to have had your staff taking pics as I didn't want to miss anything because of worrying about a camera. It was one of the most amazing experiences of my life and I would HIGHLY recommend it.

Very disappointing. There was no adventure at all. It was basically like circus trained elephants, who would lift their trunks up and all the visitors would get to stick their hands in their mouths and feel their tongue. I was disgusted. Elephants performed one trick after another whilst giving visitors photo opportunities. Would never recommend this!
