Meet our Herd

An opportunity of a lifetime, as our guides take you up close and personal with our gentle giants. Following a short informative video, guests are transported to the field, where they have the chance to feed and walk among our free-roaming herd of African Elephants. Should you wish to feed the elephants, ‘elephant snack buckets’ are available to purchase at reception.

Responsible and educational interactions enable guests to appreciate the awe-inspiring presence of these animals, on elephant terms. There are no fences to spoil the close encounter and our environment encourages elephants to exhibit natural behaviours.  During the “Meet our Herd’ daily tours, our elephants are not required to walk with guests but rather, guests are able to walk among the elephants in their own environment where they roam and move about at their own will. Our herd of elephants play a vital role in closing the gap between man and animal, allowing us to better understand the plight of the African Elephant and that of their peers in the Knysna Forest. Visitors leave the park with a sense of awe for these magnificent animals.
