Elephant Experience

Join us for an enlightening interactive elephant experience; meet our five magnificent African elephants and learn about their extraordinary behaviour and physiology, observing first-hand how the elephants have developed trust in the kindness and care they receive from the team.

Tree-Top

Adventure Challenge

The Tree-Top Challenge is an elevated obstacle course or high ropes course, made up of interconnecting poles or trees that support various obstacles or elements between them. All these interconnecting poles and trees form a giant “jungle gym” suitable for both young and old (adult) kids.

The course is the first of its kind in South Africa and is built to European Rope Course Standards, and has the latest continuous belay safety system imported from Switzerland. The course itself is made up of 19 exciting elements from balancing beams, rope bridges, spider’s webs and much more all ending on our 50m zip line. It’s suitable for people of all ages who are up for the challenge. The duration of the activity is around 1 ½ hours.
