[tabby title=”About us”]A mind-blowing experience, GREAT ELEPHANTS and good company!

By using the elephant as an ambassador and educator our aim is to educate people about the difficulties facing conservationists and all wildlife in an ever changing modern Africa, so as to ensure that we see the value of our wildife for future generations.

Adventures With Elephants provide true value for money hands-on Elephant Interactions, Elephant-back Safaris, Swims on the Elephants, Starlight Safaris as well as Tailor-made Activities such as weddings, team-building, corporate functions and filming.

Located on a beautiful wildlife reserve situated just an hour and a half drive north from Pretoria, adjacent to Zebula Country Club, Adventures With Elephants is managed by the Hensman family who have been extremely privileged to live and work with elephants since 1988. They offer you the thrill of hands-on interactions with these magnificent pachyderms and invite you into the elephant’s world where you can learn more about elephants in this unique manner whilst witnessing the elephant’s intelligence, compassionate nature and sheer delight in interacting with their human companions. The friendly, experienced and qualified elephant handlers will share their in-depth knowledge and passion for their charges with you our guest, in this unrivaled and extraordinary experience.
