More info about Knysna Elephant Park

Situated off the main highway between Plettenberg Bay and Knysna, the Knysna Elephant Park is a sanctuary established in 1994 to provide a safe home for rescued and orphaned elephants. The beautiful farm on which it is located is in the forested and scenic part of Harkerville, ideal for these giant pachyderms to roam.

The park offers a number of experiences. On the standard tour, guests are driven to the elephant enclosure for close up encounters and can stay for as long as they wish. Buy a snack bucket to feed the elephants. Other tour options include walking with or riding on the elephants. Both of these tours end with refreshments and snacks. Vastly reduced pricing encourages school groups to visit the park for an educational and fun outing. All tours are overseen by elephant handlers and tour guides to ensure the safety of all.

The docile and gentle elephants in the park are regularly used in film shoots and stand patiently while fashion photographers use them as props.   

Volunteers arrive from all parts of the world to spend time here and learn about this magnificent beast. This must be one of the best student volunteer options on the planet!

The park owners have established a ground-breaking research facility to study elephants in captivity, along with a laboratory to carry out research on the elephant’s physiological state while engaging with humans and other unfamiliar external influences. Elephant management is a top priority, as is the welfare and safety of both the elephants and visitors.

A Locals Loyalty Card is offered to encourage residents of the surrounding area to support the park and one of the major perks is receiving discounts for up to 10 friends on a visit.

The Knysna Elephant Park is one of only a few places in the world where people can interact with the elephant, a truly magical experience!
