Elephant Sanctuary – Education through an Interactive Tour

EKALA ECO TOURS OFFER THE ELEPHANT SANCTUARY AS PART OF A FULL DAY TOUR.

With the distance to be covered to the Sanctuary, best to do the Elephant Sanctuary as part of a full day tour, including other local items, wildlife or historical to create a full day tour.

To be able to structure a tour around your requirements and time available – we need to be supplied with clear timing’s and collection and drop off address – hotel name. If one of the points is the airport – I need full flight details. Once I have these it will be possible to quote/advise and structure a day or multi day package around your requirements/timing.

However if your time is short – we can supply the Elephant Sanctuary only – however the distance then to be covered for this only makes the sanctuary expensive.

Perfect tour options to include with the Elephant Sanctuary to create a full day tour:

Our price does not include the Elephant ride. Ekala Eco Tours does not approve of the riding of the elephants at the Hartbeespoort Elephant Sanctuary. We discuss this in depth en-route to the sanctuary, If, you still feel that this is something you wish to do, you simply pay the cost of this at the sanctuary – easy.

The Elephant Sanctuary

Provides a safe-haven for elephants that have been rescued and provides a halfway house for young African elephants in need of a temporary home. The handlers have obtained a special relationship based on trust obtained through reward based training. The goal is to release all the elephants into an environment where they can be more independent.

Experience the mutually enriching and rewarding relationship between man and the largest land mammal, the African Elephant. The Elephant Sanctuary group has three operations; Hartbeespoort Dam, Plettenberg Bay in the Garden Route and Hazyview in the Lowveld. Our Elephant tour will be to the Elephant Sanctuary in Hartbeespoort Dam.

At the Hartbeespoort Elephant sanctuary you will be provided with an insight into the African elephant (Loxodonta africana) with in depth information on their anatomy, history, feeding habits and general information about this animal in the wild. It provides a platform for learning through interaction with the elephants.

Guests of all ages can discover the individual temperament, personality and character of each elephant by feeding, touching, brushing the elephants. You can even take the elephant’s trunk in your hand and lead it on a short walk.

Best Elephant Photographic experience ever.

Perfect platform for learning through interaction with the elephants at the Sanctuary.
