General information

Hazyview Elephant Sanctuary has African elephants and offers an interactive elephant experience and elephant back riding. We offer hands-on educational elephant interactions with smaller groups of people. This provides our guests with a far more intimate experience with the elephants. Our dedicated staff is committed to the use of positive reinforcement elephant training methods and as a result we have relaxed elephants who enjoy interacting with our guests.

Elephant Programs

Offered daily, 7 days a week, at 08h00; 10h00; 13h00; 15h00

Guests are guided in small groups on foot through The Elephant Sanctuary. Guides will provide in-depth information and insight into African elephants. You will be introduced to our elephants in the forest area, and here you will be able to touch and interact with the elephants. You will see the special relationship that the elephant handlers share with their elephants and become a part of it. Walk trunk-in-hand with the elephants. See the stables where the elephants sleep at night. Guests learn about elephant anatomy and are able to feed them. Enjoy a drink and visit our curio shop. Remember to wear flat walking shoes, sun hats and bring your camera. If you are an early bird, join as at 07h30 sharp for an amazing Elephant Experience which includes brushing the elephants down.
