  • We book the package that included elephant and monkey sanctuary and then a 2 hour guided safari drive at Lion Park. We went in the morning to feed, bush and walk with the elephants. It was truly amazing and spectacular to be that up close to elephants. I went with my daughter (2yrs) and wife. The staff were brilliant and really made us feel safe and were helpful when taking pictures. After the elephants, we had a guided tour of the recused monkeys. Make sure you have nothing that the cheeky monkeys can grab. They had a look in all the pockets in our bag. The guide was very knowledge and really cared for the animals. We then went to the Lion Park. It was good to be able to go an a safari with my daughter and be able see all the animals and feel safe. Dusty the guide was great.
  • Such a fun outing!! The rangers are very knowledgeable and have great interpersonal skills. I learnt so much about these gentle giants! You also have multiple opportunities to feed the elephants and take really close up photos. There‚Äôs a monkey sanctuary right next to the elephant sanctuary. Great out of for the whole family or as a date.
  • Took my family here, it turned out to be one of the most spectacular outings we've had in a long time. The venue is very clean and well maintained, the animals are in great shape, the people working here are extremely knowledgeable and have the animals at heart, worthwhile the trip.
  • Really cool experience interacting with the elephants, you get to feed them and touch them and they're so intelligent they'll show you their teeth and their foot. The guides are also really nice and take pictures and videos for you with your phone.
  • The Elephant Sanctuary is a must when in Harties. Hidden gem. Sam our guide was so amazing. Really interactive. From feeding the elephants to brushing them. The handlers treat the animals with so much respect. To top it all off, the elephant trumpet on demand. With is crazy. Don't wanna talk about the money, because its worth every cent.
