Get Married with Elephants at Knysna Elephant Park
 
Founded in 1994, The Knysna Elephant Park was the first facility in South Africa to house and care for orphaned African elephants. The present KEP herd numbers ten - the largest domesticated matriarchal herd in the country. Our facilities are world class and our style of management ensures that our elephants interact with guests on their own terms.

Within this habitat, our elephant experiences offer guests the opportunity to get up close and personal with our elephants; but still gives the elephants the space and freedom to choose where they want to move, what they want to eat and who they want to interact with.

Knysna Elephant Park offers the following experiences:
Daily Tours:
Our Daily Tours leave every half hour, every day, from our reception / visitor's center. Guests are transported to the field where you have the opportunity to interact, feed and walk amongst our herd of African Elephants. Responsible and educational interactions enable guests to appreciate the awe-inspiring presence of these animals, on elephant terms. There are no fences to spoil the close encounter and our environment encourages elephants to exhibit natural behaviors. Our experience duration is 45 - 60 minutes, but guests are welcome to spend as much time as they wish with the elephants.

Elephant Breakfast Picnic Walks:
Experience an early morning walk with our elephants - welcoming the new day at 'elephant pace'. Ending at our lapa venue, this package includes a breakfast basket filled with delicious goodies, for you to enjoy while you overlook the Outeniqua mountains and the valley with indigenous forest.

Elephant Walks:
Experience an incredible scenic walk, meandering through the Park at elephant pace with panoramic views of the Outeniqua mountains and Knysna Forest. Join our guides who will relate informative 'elephant tales' while you follow in the footsteps of these remarkable animals. Round this off with refreshments at the Elephant Park restaurant.

Elephant Lodge accommodation option:
Knysna Elephant Park elephants enjoy world-class facilities: during the day they roam the property, but at the end of the day they hurry back to their boma / night camp for a pampered night's sleep. Built within the elephant sleeping quarters, the Elephant Lodge offers guests the unique opportunity to spend the night with a herd of African elephants. Enjoy your elephant sleep-over in unique accommodation overlooking the boma; or spend the evening relaxing in the communal lounge, watching the elephants browse, feed and snooze...
