For a truly spectacular Lowveld adventure, you should look no further than Elephant Whispers, an extraordinary place where interacting with the compassionate and exceptionally intelligent African Elephant will leave you breathless.
A couple of highlights to look forward to at Elephant Whispers…. The interaction with the elephant offers you the opportunity to touch the elephant, exchange trunk greetings and offer tasty treats. Experienced Elephant Handlers share their in-depth knowledge of fascinating elephant behaviour. Explore the rough contours of the elephant’s wrinkled skin, stroke the velvety skin under their ears and offer a tongue massage to an enthusiastic elephant! Have your photograph taken standing under the impressive six ton Tembo. For prospective husbands looking to propose to their partners, Elephant Whispers offers one of the most unforgettable ways to pop the question. With an elephant presenting the ring to bride-to-be, how could she possibly say no?
After the interaction, saddle-up and set off into the African bush on the back of the elephant. Enjoy a different perspective while embarking on a journey that was once a privilege reserved only for kings! The safari takes you past a dam (which the elephants drink from and occasionally splash around in on hot days) on the banks of the Sabie . As you can imagine, horse-riding cannot quite compare to this incredible experience. You slowly rock back and forth as the elephant takes its giant steps. One can feel the cool breeze created by the huge, flapping, Africa-shaped ears, and the joyful thought that you are actually riding an elephant will put a goofy grin on your face.
Elephant Whispers are dedicated to securing the future of the African Elephant, and welcome people of all ages to share in the excitement of close encounters with these magnificent creatures. Experience the privilege of little Lindiwe’s compassionate nature, witness Medwa’s remarkable memory and enjoy the thrill of interacting with Tembo.
