Directly adjacent to Monkeyland and the Birds of Eden sanctuaries in Plettenberg Bay, The Elephant Sanctuary hosts a unique and fully guided educational program that sets itself apart from anything else that South Africa has on offer in terms of elephant interaction. Guest numbers are strictly limited to ensure personal attention and maximum elephant interaction for each guest, making this a memorable and enriching experience.
Visitors can learn more about elephant habits, behaviour, different personalities and anatomy through up-close and personal interaction. You get an opportunity to touch, feed and even walk trunk-in-hand with these magnificent animals.
The Elephant Sanctuary provides a “halfway house” for young African elephants in need of a temporary home. It is the only operation in South Africa that provides for elephants in this way. Elephants are released into an environment where they can be more independent once they are older and no longer require the special care.
Notes: The venue, including the bathrooms, is wheelchair friendly and there are wheelchairs available for guests’ use. Visit the well-stocked curio shop which offers free tea, coffee, water and juice to all guests and a kiddies play area.
