More about Elephant Back & Sundowners

Join the elephant herd as it makes its way back to the stables on this sunset elephant experience. Walk alongside them through the forest near Hazyview, or ride on their backs and get a glimpse of life at their level. A very special elephant experience that’ll make you feel like part of the herd.

Once you reach the stables, you’ll take part in the elephants’ evening routine. Enjoy the interaction with these gentle giants before they head to bed. Afterwards, you’ll enjoy a sundowner as you listen to the elephants settle down for the night and recall your incredible elephant experience.

It was a life time experience. Riding the elephant but espacially learning all about the kind way they treat this elephants. You could ask as many questions as you liked and became up close and personal.
