Here is something to add to your bucket list, spend the night with a herd of elephants. At the Knysna Elephant Park, they not only care for their orphaned elephants, but also offer the opportunity for you to stay over, close to the elephant's boma, for a night of blissful slumber. The rooms overlook the elephants sleeping quarters, and there is a communal lounge area, which allows you to watch the elephants in their boma, as they feed and rest.
Activities include; guided breakfast elephant walks, picnic walks, and sundowners with elephants. There is also a volunteer programme, whereby you can assist with the elephant care and research, where you’ll be able to observe and get to know the elephants at close quarters.
