Sightseeing Tours from Johannesburg

Elephant Sanctuary Tours

The Elephant Sanctuary provides a safe-haven for Elephants and offers a platform for guest education and interaction. They offer guest and elephant driven programs where the most important part of the operation is happy Elephants and satisfied guests. Their programs offer one of a kind elephant interaction and are unique to the Elephant Sanctuary. All the Elephants are rescued African Elephants and they have gained their trust through a unique reward based training program.

Nestled in the Magaliesberg Mountains, only one hour from Johannesburg and Pretoria, The Elephant Sanctuary near the Hartbeespoort Dam lies in a malaria-free area. It is surrounded by natural indigenous bush and is home to impala, klipspringer, baboons, porcupine, caracal, leopard, a host of other small mammals, 350 bird species and, of course, four magnificent African Elephants.

The Elephant Sanctuary also provides a “halfway house” for young African elephants in need of a temporary home. It is the only operation in South Africa that provides for elephants in this way. It is their vision to release all the elephants into an environment where they can be more independent once they are older.

The Elephant Sanctuary is a family orientated business catering for both young and the old. They believe that the positive energy an elephant exudes is transferred to people and makes a major contribution towards people’s wellbeing. The venue, including the bathrooms, is wheelchair friendly.
