One of the top three excursions we had the pleasure of enjoying our recent two week vacay to SA and Zimbabwe. This operation if first class all the way. Our small group of 8 were treated to walking out to meet the gentle giants in their habitat and then following them along their trails to a clearing where were learned how to feed them "trunk up" or "trunk down". A daunting task at first ... but within minutes the 8 of us where rushing to pick-up more ellie yum'yums to feed the crew. A unique experience capped off with a home-made breakfast served on the deck. Spectacular - a don't miss event !

This Elephant Experience was wonderful. The staff was so kind and knowledgeable. The elephants were charming and seemed truly happy. I loved feeding them. And the video and photos taken by the staff was a great souvenir. I would recommend this to anyone of any age. They are doing something very special here.
