Very excited to see Elephants. We met the whole family! We fed the elephants and rode them as well. My sons 2 and 7, LOVED THIS EXPERIENCE!! I absolutely 100% recommend you visit this place, a stunning experience. Beware though when wiring money over from another country as we did from Canada. They do not list in there, their own bank fees and you will be expected to pay them on arrival even though you paid their invoice in exact and paid your own remittance fees as well. It is not listed on the invoice that you must pay this.
Well, we wouldn't do it again! The two stars only because the breakfast which was included in the elephant walk was the best from the whole trip. You can skip the walk with elephants and go to the cheaper version (feeding and touching). The staff was very unfriendly and as we think not interested in us. As we saw the sticks they use we were shocked because we saw a documentation about exactly the same sticks used for elephants. Some of the poor animals were making circus things because they are afraid. That's our opinion. You can take photos as well as videos if you like to do it. First you have to watch a 7 minute trailer about there work and how fast they grow. It's up to you but we didn't liked it except the breakfast. If you are interested in elephants you can go to Addo Nationalpark and see happy elephants!
The elephants are just beautiful creatures. It was a wonderful experience. I would go back again.
Wow, elephants are amazing, wonderful, intelligent animals and the park at Knysna provides a priveliged secret insight into the lifes of these incredible animals. If possible take advantage of the lodge and sleep next door to the elephants warm enclosure. You'll also get to learn about the elephants and feed them by hand!
Nice staff but short visit (less explanations than normal) due to a school group that monopolized the staff. Pity! But very close encounter with the elephants although they interact in a very "interested" manner with the guests as they perfectly know that we come to feed them!
