Elephant Sanctuary Johannesburg tour package
The Elephant Sanctuary at Hartebeespoort near Johannesburg and Pretoria provides a safe haven for elephants and offers a unique platform for guest education and interaction.
The programs are guest and elephant driven, which means the most important part of the operation is to ensure happy elephants and satisfied guests. The close encounter with elephants you experience at The Elephant Sanctuary truly is one of a kind.
All the elephants are African Elephants (Loxodonta Africana) whose trust has been gained through unique reward based training. Elephant Sanctuary believes in forming bonds between humans and elephants. To this end, all the elephants are exercised and stimulated daily, which provides a firm foundation for trust.
The Elephant Sanctuary is a family oriented operation catering for both young and old, focusing 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 animals. Elephants are highly intelligent and delightful – when meeting them you will discover that each one has a different character, personality and temperament.
