The Knysna Elephant Park has dedicated the last 20 years to elephants; and it is both nationally and internationally recognised as one of the best captive elephant facilities in the world. More than 40 elephants have been rescued and/or relocated by the Knysna Elephant Park. The Park has played a vital role in formulating regulations and guidelines for captive elephants throughout South Africa.
Visitors to the park are privileged to have a personal encounter with our gentle giants, and leave having gained a new-found respect for these animals, as well as a better understanding of the African elephant and its plight across the continent. Most importantly, by visiting the Park and experiencing our elephant herd, guests make a direct contribution to elephant husbandry and care. Visitors to the Park enable us to give our elephants the best possible facilities, nutrition and care. They also allow us to offer other elephants in need the chance of a better life.
