More than just a "touch and feed” activity, our comprehensive interactions aim for each of our visitors to experience, acutely, the intellect and warmth of our gentle giants.
Sit atop an elephant while it gracefully and silently takes you on a journey through the African veld. Feel the elephant’s strength as he breaks branches and feeds on the way, or as he powers over hills or through slight dips. Your elephant handler will enlighten you about the flora and fauna in our reserve as well as answer any questions you may have.
Elephants are special animals. At AWE we believe that they should be admired and enjoyed in as many ways as possible so that as many of us as possible can care about them. We offer tailor-made activities like bush walks, photography and film, night rides or celebrating special events.
Romance in the Bush
If you're thinking of doing something unique for that special person in your life, we have a list of options that would make it an unforgettable experience.
Film & Photography
There are many ways to contribute to wildlife conservation. One of the greatest is to inspire people in their living rooms about how incredible elephants are; from complicated scenes in a Hollywood blockbuster to natural scenes for educational documentaries, and all in between, we can and have inspired audiences worldwide. Adventures with Elephants has been able to provide elephants, handlers, and locations for many photographic assignments as well as film productions.
Adventures with Elephants
are proud to offer another unique experience in the Elephant Spa
which replaces the Swim with the Elephants. This experience is an add on after the educational interaction or safari, where you accompany the herd up to the top dam to watch the herd swimming while you relax with a soft drink and some light snacks on the observation deck.
You will have the opportunity to spend some intimate time with some of these majestic elephants in the water, while brushing & bathing them (with a bit of splashing thrown in). There are also great photo opportunities where you can pose with the elephants mud bathing and swimming in the background.
A truly intimate, AWE inspiring activity.
