A soulful and insightful experience

Immerse yourself in the remarkable journey of the Jabulani herd, shared by our team of elephant carers who have walked side by side with the elephants for more than twenty years. Observe the herd, from a respectful and comfortable distance, as they spend their days foraging naturally in the wild. Enjoy the opportunity to understand elephants on a deeper level, as well as to appreciate the importance of the conservation and protection of the elephant species.

As our guest, you play a crucial role in helping us and HERD Trust (Hoedspruit Elephant Rehabilitation and Development – South Africa’s first dedicated elephant orphanage) to support the rescued herd and orphans, and protect their future. Your elephant levy helps us to sustain these remarkable animals.
