Had such an amazing and humbling experience. Rehab for Ele's - what more could you ask for. Support them and get an experience of a lifetime. Just dont ride them.

A nice afternoon with a lot of elephant interactions like feeding, touching, walking and even kissing. The whole experience is still not touristy but elephant friendly. Highly recommended.

Little places of heaven like this do exist outside our urban jungle.Nice hour drive out of the city and then you are in a sanctuary that houses these gentle giants.Our guide was very well informed and shared all kinds of facts with us that I had never heard. You could see he is passionate about what he does.The experience was well structured and it felt like we had stepped away from our busy lives and entered a whole new universe of being in the forest with these beautiful creatures.There was an opportunity to feed, interact, walk with and finally get a big smooch from the elephant family. How many of us can say we have done that?The guides were also great with the kids who wanted to and had yet had great reservations approaching the elephants. The guides and handlers really put them at ease and created a safe space for them to participate in the experienceThe sanctuary was well looked after, the amenaties were clean and of a high standard. There is a little curio shop in the front making it convenient to grab some water. I wish they just had a restaurant because then You could grab something to eat while waiting for your tour. It would also be another streaming revenue for them.Had a lovely day. So extraordinary when it was out of the ordinary

Its amazing to see these giants in such a gentle and calm environment. Its +- R775 for the elephant experience which includes walking with an elephant , trunk in hand, the morning brush down (if youre there at 8am) a display of commands and feeding an elephant a treat. The guide teaches you about elephants and you are free to ask as many questions as youd like. You get to witness one or two extra commands that these intelligent creatures respond to. For an additional R550 you ride an elephant bareback (with a handler riding as well) . You do two or three rounds on elephant back. The price is fair considering the cost to run a place like the elephant sanctuary .An elephant consumes up to 200 kg of food a Day and drinks about 150 liters of water. Their minimum space requirement is one hectare per elephant . All things considered the price is fair as these are high maintenance animals . Remember if these werent in a private reserve theyd probably be culled due to the elephant population being too large at some national parks. The Hartbeespoort branch is about 120 hectares and is sufficient for their 5 or 6 elephants and is therefore a great habitat for these creatures. This is also a non breeding sanctuary.

This is a daylight robbery, R1,000 for a full trip, over R700 for elephant only. I rather book a lunch and feed elephant for free at Glen Afric less than 10 minutes from here.

Stunning room, beautiful location and excellent service.Some confusion regarding the check in time as they differ on safari now and on the website.A peaceful stay.

review by Ashleigh Magnet, South Africa

"Disappointing"

Very expensive for what it is.

We were not allowed to walk around the property, and in order to see the elephants are asked to pay more. Given the cost of accommodations, we should be allowed to walk around and see the elephants.

I would not recommend this place to anyone, unless they want to waste their money.
