If you stay in Hazyview, don't miss this informative tour. We opted for the brief ride at the end of the tour, which is well worth it!

I met the elephant and had the chance to stay during two days with them. Sharing tame with the staff go in the bush with all of them. A great place to encounter nature sharing of emotions and love between elephants and their human's friends....More

I don't believe wild animals should be kept and ridden across the sunset no matter how lovely people find the experience. They do look beautiful walking up the road with the sun setting behind, but I wouldn't do it or recommend it.

You learn a lot about African Elephants. You get to interact with them. It is amazing to be so close to such a large animal. Yo have the option of riding on the back of an elephant. The ride lasts about 20-25 minutes.

Each time we visit Hazyview we like to take our extra guests for a visit to Elephant Whispers. No matter how many times I meet Tembo, I am still in awe of his size. Fantastic interaction with the elephants and highly recommend the sundowner interaction.

Yes it is possible you can brush the elephants. They actually ly down so you can feel them, touch the ears & body.
