Elephant Sanctuary

  • Nature Preserve/Wildlife Refuge

Updated 11/11/2014

Fodor's Review

The Elephant Sanctuary is home to 5 of the big mammals and has elephant rides. Visits must be prearranged and include interactive educational sessions. 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. This is a good option if you're spending a day in the Hartbeespoort area (do the Ann van Dyk Cheetah Centre and the Hartbeespoort

Aerial Cableway on the same day), or visit it on the way to Pilanesberg or Madikwe if you're headed there.
