Sleepover With Elephants

Built within the elephant sleeping quarters, our Extraordinary Elephant Lodge offers guests the unique opportunity to spend the night with our herd of African elephants. Enjoy an ”elephant sleep-over” in unique accommodation overlooking the boma; or spend the evening relaxing in the communal lounge, watching the elephants snooze…

Do elephants lie down or stand up when they sleep? Come and see for yourself! The Park’s elephants enjoy world-class facilities: during the day they have the freedom to roam the property, but at the end of the day they come back to their boma / night camp for a pampered night’s sleep. The elephants have the freedom to choose where they sleep, inside or out (depending on weather conditions) as we do not restrict their movement to inside the boma alone. They also have access to a dam, a variety of additional food, enrichments and treats to supplement their complex dietary requirements.

The communal lounge is now providing surveillance visuals by live streaming, just in case you miss something exciting!
