Meet our elephant herd and encounter the giants of the animal kingdom. Join our elephant team behind the scenes at the elephant house to get a closer look at the worlds largest living land mammal.

For around two and a half hours you will be with the elephant team experiencing what it is like to look after the needs of these remarkable animals. Our herd of elephants are managed using protective contact based on positive reinforcement. This means that keepers never enter the same area as the elephants and husbandry routines are performed through a protective barrier, specially designed for the purpose. Your encounter may include anything from meeting the herd to watching them have their feet washed.

You will receive free admission to the safari and as part of your experience you get 10% off an annual membership giving you all the benefits of being a member at the park including free entry for a year. We will also include 10% off in the gift shop or restaurant on the day of your experience.

The elephant encounter is for 18 years +.

Please be aware that our Elephant Keeper Experiences are for one person only maximum.

A gift voucher will be posted out to you, with instructions of how to book in your encounter date. Bookings can only be made March – October, with limited availability left in 2016.

    Worth every penny to be so close to ‘the girls’ and spend time with keepers who clearly love them and know their subject.
    Expect to learn lots including who’s ‘done’ what to how elephants go to bed …..
    Never has poo pushing and foot scrubbing been such a privilege !!

    I have just had the most wonderful morning in the company of the keepers and elephants. The team of keepers who I was with were amazing! Their knowledge and love of these awesome animals shone from them. They involved me throughout the whole of encounter, nothing was too much trouble. I would never have thought poop shovelling could be so much fun!!!!! I cannot put into words my appreciation to the team. Thank you so much for making my birthday treat unforgettable.

    I don’t think I’ll stop grinning for a long time after my ‘elephant experience’ on Sunday … definitely one of the best days of my life! Getting up close with these intelligent beautiful creatures was amazing! I firstly have to give a girl power ‘high five ‘ to their keepers .. three very knowledgeable girls who couldn’t be more caring, kind and friendly to both the elephants and myself .. amazed at what they train the elephants to do .. only to maintain their health but its obvious the bond that they all have .. and how much respect that is between both keeper and elephant. I was privileged to be part of the team that morning, from shovelling out poo to preparing breakfasts, exfoliating tail to rubbing Ashanti’s ears .. and listening to her ‘purr’ with contentment. Its an experience that I will treasure and remember for ever . Thank you … X
