This place is great to learn about African Elephant, to see this amazing animal really close, to touch it and if you are brave enough to ride it (with a professional who know how to treat this massive animal)! Good experience!

We were amazed to see in what great condition the Elephants were. The staff of the Elephant sanctuary treated us business owners to a lovely afternoon. Their facilities are neat and the surroundings beautiful. They really do an amazing job with the Elephants.

I am not an expert, and not sure what research you have done, but I think there is a distinction between Indian Elephants and African Elephants...the Indian Elephants are not suitable for riding, whereas the African Elephant... More
