Knysna Elephant Park Reviews
We went to this park not really sure what to expect. We received a well informed, extremely memorable meeting with the elephants. We got to feed them and interact with them, to a very limited degree..... more »
It was an awesome experience to have a walk with these beautiful giants. Good informations of the tour guides. more »
Spent a brilliant morning here. The tour with the elephants started with a tractor ride. Then we got to feed the elephants before being split in small groups of 3-4 and getting a chance to ask questions and get up close with the grey giants. The toddler was done after that so we hopped on the next tractor back, but it was made clear we could feel free to hang out as long as possible with the elephants. The next highlight was the lovely garden and two playgrounds which kept the toddler busy while we enjoyed coffee and checked out the store. Highly recommended.
It's not a zoo. Don't expect to spend hours there. It's a really nice 1 hour+ stop to know more about the elephants and support the effort of raising orphans elephants before they can be old or big enough to be released to reserves. We had a great time walking beside the gentle giants. Do wear covered shoes. Trust me, your foot will be happier.
