A couple of highlights to look forward to at Elephant Whispers….Explore the rough contours of the elephant’s wrinkled skin, stroke the velvety skin under their ears, and enjoy the breeze from the cool air being circulated when the elephant gently flap their ears. Offer a tongue massage to an enthusiastic elephant! Have your photograph taken standing under the impressive six ton Tembo.
Elephant Whispers are dedicated to securing the future of the African Elephant, and welcome people of all ages to share in the excitement of close encounters with these magnificent creatures. Experience the privilege of little Lindiwe’s compassionate nature, witness Medwa’s remarkable memory and enjoy the thrill of interacting with Tembo.
The interaction with the elephant offers you the opportunity to touch the elephant, exchange trunk greetings and offer tasty treats. Experienced Elephant Handlers share their in-depth knowledge of fascinating elephant behaviour.
Your visit to Elephant Whispers ensures these six incredible mammals continue in their important role as wildlife ambassadors for their own kind.
For a memorable hour, guests have the chance to interact with these enormous creatures – handing out pellets and touching the varying textures of their trunk, tongue, skin and feet.
After the interaction, saddle-up and set off into the African bush on the back of the elephant. Enjoy a different perspective while embarking on a journey that was once a privilege reserved only for kings!
