Accommodation near Elephant Sanctuary - Hartbeespoort

The Elephant Sanctuary in Hartbeespoort, some 45km from Johannesburg, offers an elephant experience for life.

The Haartbeesport Elephant Sanctuary is one of three African Elephant Sanctuaries (the other two being the Hazyview Elephant Sanctuary and the Plettenberg Bay Elephant Sanctuary) across three provinces in Southern Africa which provide a safe haven and "halfway house" for African elephants. These sanctuaries provide fully guided interactive elephant educational programs covering elephant habits, dynamics, behavior and anatomy.

The elephants in the sanctuary have been domesticated through positive reinforcement animal management principles, and as a result, provide visitors with the unique opportunity to interact with them.Visitors are able to touch, feed and get to know these animals.

The elephant handlers and tour guide are well versed in elephant knowledge and put a lot of effort into understanding and caring for the animals. During the tour there are plenty of opportunities for guests to ask questions, as well as many opportunities for photographs.

The sanctuary is unique in that it offers the incredible opportunity to walk hand-in-trunk with the elephant and Elephant Back Riding. Bare-back Elephant Riding gives us humans the unique experience of being able feel first hand the power and bulk of an elephant in contrast with it's innate grace as it moves across the earth.

This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to experience the environment from an elephant's perspective.

The Hartbeespoort Elephant Sanctuary offers a daily elephant interaction program from 8am to 2pm.

We had never been up that end of the country and found Brits very friendly in the short time we were there. We found a steak house and the meal was tasty & good value for money, service & friendliness was second to none.
