Adventures with Elephants
We protect wildlife through education. As numbers of elephants have decreased by some 350% in the last 70 years and by 110 000 elephants in the last ten years due to poaching and habitat loss, we are honoured to have saved a few.
We offer close up and personal encounters with our elephants carried out with cheerfullness and respect for the welfare of both our majestic residents and you our guest. Here you will learn all about our continent's gentle giants, their intelligence, their bodies, their behaviour. You will leave humbled and moved, and a lifetime ambassador of holistic wildlife conservation.
If you're interested in visiting Adventures with Elephants, visiting a Rhino orphanage or experiencing Dr. Morne De Ray's work in person, contact us today to find out about our Conservation Tours.
Proceeds from these tours goes directly back into the projects we support.
Two Greek words, ‘rhino’ meaning nose and ‘ceros’ meaning horn combine to create the word rhinoceros.
A group of rhinos is called a crash.
There are five extant species of rhino – white and black (found in Africa), Indian, Javan, and Sumatran (found in southern Asia).
Rhino horns are made of keratin, the same substance that makes up our nails and hair.
Rhino gestation lasts between 15 and 16 months, usually giving birth to just one calf (twins are very rare). Young rhinos will remain with their mothers until they are between two or three years old.
