Our Favorite activity in this area –

Elephant Whisper

Experience the thrill of being close to these magnificent creatures and witness their intelligence, their compassionate nature and sheer delight interacting with their human counterparts.

The interaction with the Elephant offers you the opportunity to touch the Elephant, exchange trunk greetings and offer tasty treats. Experienced Elephant handlers share their in-depth knowledge of fascinating Elephant behaviour.

In addition to interacting with the Elephants, embark on a short ride. Saddle up and enjoy a different perspective, historically a privilege only reserved for kings!

Elephant Whispers is an Elephant Interaction and Safari Venue located on the banks of the Sabi River, next to Hippo Hollow Hotel on the R40 in Hazyview, Mpumalanga.

Elephant Whispers have six tamed and trained elephant, varying in ages from nine to twenty six years. Lindiwe, the youngest, is Elephant Whispers’ much loved female. Medwa, Andile, Shamwari and Ziziphus are the ‘teenagers’, and Tembo, the six ton gentle giant heads up the Elephant Whispers’ herd.

These elephant were rescued from planned culling operations in Game Reserves by Elephants for Africa Forever (EFAF). EFAF are committed to conservation and to excellence in the taming and training of elephant and their Handlers and Guides. Rory and Lindie Hensman’s kind and gentle training methods ensure the Elephant Handlers and Elephant work together in total harmony.

The domestication and training process is achieved by applying the principles of the well tried and proven bilateral ‘ask and reward’ system, wherein mutual trust and respect between humans and elephant are honoured.
