Knysna Elephant Park Visits:
Daily tours leave on the half hour every day from 8.30am to 4pm from the visitor's center and video viewing room to the elephants.

Guests are transported to the elephants on a tractor & trailer where they will have the opportunity to touch, feed and photograph our gentle giants.

Elephants love eating so don’t forget your bucket elephant feed. There are no barriers or fences to spoil the close encounter.

Guests are then transported back to unique elephant curios shop and Askaris restaurant.

Duration
45min to 1 hour but guests are invited to stay as long as they wish.

Elephant Back Safari:
Get a once in a lifetime opportunity to ride one of these incredible creatures. All elephant rides are conducted according to strict welfare guidelines. No saddles are used and the entire herd stays together.

Enjoy spectacular views of the Outeniqua mountain range as you ride through indigenous Cape fynbos.

Round off this amazing experience with refreshments at the lapa.

Requirements: Moderately fit, long trousers, good walking shoes, hat, sunscreen, insect repellent & camera.

Elephant Walking Safari:
This awe-inspiring experience of following the elephants’ footsteps is very similar to the Elephant Back Rides, except here you choose to walk with them at their pace. The guided nature walk takes you through indigenous Cape fynbos and offers spectacular views of the Outeniqua mountain range and Knysna forest. This is a spiritual experience which leaves one humbled and moved, it concludes with refreshments at the Lapa overlooking the forest.
 
The Elephant Walking Safari lasts approximately 1 - 1½ hours with about 20 - 30 minutes walking with the elephants.
