The Elephant Family Quarters within its 29000 square feet facility is the largest elephant herd room in the entire North America. While roaming in the outdoor area, you will get to interact with the elephants, impalas and plains zebras. The indoor arena surface of Elephant Family Quarters is covered with three feet soft sand. Here you will see the routine enrichment process of the elephants with the hay basket dropping from ceiling 24/7 within their reach and the enrichment wall with treat-filled cubbies for them to eat. All the processes are regulated with a timer. The 2 inches to 5 feet deep 150000 gallon pool with filtered water, mud wallows, soil and sand substrate, behavioural demonstrations and artificial log carrying trainings are also offered to the elephants.

Elephant Family Quarters Reviews & Ratings
Kids and I loved seeing the elephants fairly close up. It was very cool to see the trunk in action.
Loved the zoo!
Was there around 2pm and they fed the elephants. Super cool watching them get the elephants to turn and lift their feet for wellness checks. This is where they will be when it's colder.
This a great area to see and learn about elephants. They have a lot of things to stimulate the elephants and keep them healthy mentally and physically!
Indoor place for the rescued elephants to hang out
