Google "DSWT foster" and the first result will take you the Fostering page. Once there, you can read about the fostering program and then select which elephant or rhino or giraffe you'd like to foster. After you make your selection and make your payment you can then send them an email, make sure to tell them who you have fostered and on what date, for the day you would like to visit. If there is space, they will let you know and then you can confirm the date.

The day visit was more crowded, but you can see the elephants being more active. The evening visit is less crowded, but you only see them running in to their stockades for their bottles and to browse on their greens. If you can, I would do both. If I had to choose one, it would be evening.
