We loved this! Not only was it a ton of fun, we also learned a lot about elephants, their personalities, and their habitat. The guides and staff were very friendly, but of course you're going for the elephants...and they were the stars (and they knew it). They were clearly well looked after, including having plenty of space to roam. One thing we didn't love was a few injuries to the elephants from the way they were cared for in the past, but it was obviously well in the past and they were up front about it and had clearly improved things since. We are elephant lovers and these elephants were clearly loved and properly cared for. We definitely recommend visiting and supporting their efforts.

Dear Collin,

Thank you for your 5* review and we are super glad you enjoyed meeting the ellies.

In regard the past injuries “from the way they were cared for in the past”, just to clarify that the injuries were self-inflicted by the elephants – not by their past carers. Sadly it does look bad on us.

Again, thank you for visiting us & we hope to see you in the future!

Kindest regards

We spent a lovely hour with the Zebula elephants. The guides were informed and well spoken; and really found a way to engage our children positively. Definitely recommended in the area. Book well in advance if you want to go on a ride; the encounter experience is well worth it too.

Thank Matvl

I celebrated my birthday by having a day to spend with these amazing animals. They are so misunderstood but amazing to learn and to change your opinion. I was blessed to play with them in the dam which is beyond my wildest dreams. LOVED EVERY MOMENT OF IT

THANK YOU

The whole experience was amazing from start to finish. Llewelyn gave us a history of the place and what they’re trying to accomplish with elephants. David was very knowledgeable of the elephants and you could see he loved his job. I didn’t realize how much we were going to get to play with the elephants! In one hour we got to meet each one and see what they’re capable of doing. It was a fantastic experience.
