The Elephant Sanctuary provides a safe haven for our elephants and offers a unique platform for guest education and interaction.

All our programs are guest and elephant driven, which means the most important part of our operation is to ensure happy elephants and satisfied guests. The close encounter with elephants you experience at The Elephant Sanctuary truly is one of a kind.

All our elephants are African Elephants (Loxodonta Africana) whose trust we’ve gained through our unique reward based training. We believe in forming bonds between humans and elephants. To this end, all our elephants are exercised and stimulated daily, which provides a firm foundation for trust.

The Elephant Sanctuary is a family orientated operation catering for both young and old. We focus on education through interaction, so you will not only learn a lot about elephants, but also get to touch, feel, feed, walk trunk-in-hand and even ride these magnificent animals. Elephants are highly intelligent and delightful – when meeting them you will discover that each one has a different character, personality and temperament.

We have three operations: in The Crags, near Plettenberg Bay on the Garden Route, at the Hartbeespoort Dam, only an hour's drive from Johannesburg and Pretoria, and in Hazyview, a 10-minute drive from the Kruger National Park.
