The Elephant Sanctuary Hartbeespoort

At The Elephant Sanctuary you will experience close encounters with elephants which is truly one of a kind. The Elephant Sanctuary provides a safe haven for our elephants and offers a unique platform for interaction between man and elephant to ensure happy elephants and satisfied guests.

Only African Elephants (Loxodonta Africana) are residing at the sanctuary whose trust have been gained through a unique reward-based training. All the elephants are exercised and stimulated daily, which provides a firm foundation for trust.

The Elephant Sanctuary is a family orientated operation catering for both young and old. When meeting them you will discover that each one has a different character, personality and temperament. The focus is on education through interaction, so you will not only learn a lot about elephants, but also get to touch, feel, feed, walk trunk-in-hand and even ride these magnificent huge animals.
Elephants are highly intelligent and delightful. They are the largest land-living animals, with no natural predators. Unfortunately these gentle giants are threatened by human intrusion and poaching.
