Fodor's Review

The Elephant Sanctuary is home to 10 of the big mammals and has elephant rides. Visits are via prearranged interactive educational sessions only. As part of the session, you can groom and feed the elephants; learn about their habits, personalities, and anatomy; and ride one of Africa's largest mammals. A small on-site lodge sleeps up to 12.
