In previous times, interacting with elephants was a luxury afforded only to fellow jungle-folk, elephant-whisperers and lost children raised by wolves, named Mowgli. Get acquainted with these majestic creatures in the modern age with today’s Groupon: a hands-on one-hour elephant interaction experience with Adventures with Elephants for R235.
Situated on a beautiful wildlife reserve just an hour and a half north of Pretoria, Adventures with Elephants opens its far-stretching natural landscape to a family of majestic creatures. Managed by the Hensman family who have worked with elephants since 1988, the team offers curious Groupies the thrill of interacting with the lively pachyderms in an educational and enjoyable experience. Learn about their unique manner, witness the elephants’ intelligence and compassionate nature and bask in their friendly demeanours.
Whilst Groupon-grippers stand in awe of the amazing animals, experienced and qualified elephant handlers will share their in-depth knowledge about the magnificent beings. More than just the usual “touch and feed” meeting, the experience will impart a new appreciation for the large mammals, a mind blowing experience and the company of friendly elephants with loads of character. Groupies can also choose to add other adventures to their package at an additional cost, such as elephant-back safari and swimming with the gentle giants.
