This tour was great. Thoroughly enjoyed the how informative the guide was. The deer sanctuary was good and got to handle a very large snake, but the highlight of the day was getting in the river with the baby elephant. It was fantastic. The only draw back was that the fridges had broken down at the sanctuary so limited cold drinks etc. otherwise very good.Reviewed by: dogfreak, November 2013
Wow...what an experience it was to learn about and interact with these magnificent creatures. We had a wonderful time at the Sanctuary. It's not every day you get to wade into a river and give an elephant a bath...something that is unforgettable. Also included in the tour is a stop at Deer Park. We had a great time feeding the deer and seeing the other animals. Our tour guide was informative, friendly, and a helpful. This tour is well worth the cost.Reviewed by: Dale M, October 2013
Wonderful. The trip was made all the better by a wonderful guide- Shirley - she made the trip memorable. The children loved bathing the elephant and this one trip which should not be missedReviewed by: ibrahim, September 2013
Way too expensive for what you actually do and see. The deer farm is so, so (the plants were more exciting than the animals), the visit of native people in a village was a drive by and pointing to the village "here they live". Seeing / feeding the elephants was a good experience but I don't rate it "value for money".Reviewed by: retobibi, December 2013
Whilst we had an enjoyable day - this trip was disappointing considering how much we paid. The tour guide was friendly and somewhat informative, but not as good as the viator tour I did in Cape Town earlier this year. He made a few additional stops on the way to the Elephant Orphanage which we interesting, but resulted in us arriving after the set activities had started. We missed half of them and were only at the Elephant Orphanage for less than an hour. When we said something about this to the tour guide he wasn't really apologetic, just simply said "sometimes they change the time of things". Due to high tides we weren't able to wash the elephants either. It was OK, but just felt like visiting elephants at a zoo and having a chance to feed them. It wasn't much of a "natural experience with animals".Reviewed by: JA H, September 2013
