Extraordinary Elephant Encounters

“You know … they say an elephant never forgets. What they don’t tell you is, you never forget an elephant.” ~ Actor Bill Murray , at the end of the motion picture ‘Larger Than Life’

At the Knysna Elephant Park, we offer a variety of elephant encounters – all aimed at giving our visitors unique insight into one of earth’s most magnificent creatures. You may choose a daily tour and get to feed an elephant and then spend some time in amongst our beautiful herd of African elephants, or you may want to walk alongside an elephant, following in the footsteps of Africa’s giants….whatever your choice is, our extraordinary elephant experiences will provide you with memories to last a lifetime.

Yes, you may have touched an elephant by the end of your visit…but these special creatures have their own way of touching you….and leaving a mark in your mind and heart for a long time to come…Be touched by an elephant today…

Daily tours leave reception every 30 minutes and no prior reservations are required (all weather activity). Bookings are essential for our other elephant encounters, so contact us today to arrange your personal elephant experience.

All interactions are conducted according to strict welfare guidelines.

Our experienced handlers and guides are seen as part of the herd and spend their day in the field with their elephant charges, always on hand to personally introduce the elephants and provide more information about them and the Park.
