Support us and make a difference for conservation
We are proud that our interactions have touched the lives of more than 15000 guests in the last few years and aim to continue educating the public in the wonders of the magnificent African elephant so that elephants may have value to as many as possible.
Elephants, land, barns, buildings, vehicles, research and staff are expensive to maintain so we rely on our interactions and other events to keep us going. We grow our own food for our elephants and regularly assist in emergency and anti-poaching efforts in the Bela Bela area. We try to keep our elephants comfortable, stimulated and happy. Donations are as important to us as our operations. We need both to keep us going.
We support various operations including RHCRU(Rory Hensman Conservation & Research Unit), Stop Rhino Poaching, Invictus K9 and raising funds for Bat Hawks to help with poaching in the area.
Your donation, no matter how small, allows us to continue our work and we are grateful for any extra help we can get. Below are ways you can make a difference to the lives of our elephants and the lives of other wildlife in the area.

Help us fight poaching
Wildlife crime is a common occurence in South Africa. Nights of full moon are called "Poacher's Moon" in our industry. Our only chance of stopping poachers or getting to injured animals on time is by air. We can also cover a much larger area by air. Aero planes and helicopters are too expensive. A bat hawk is a small cost efficient alternative to a plane or helicopter would go a long way to allowing us to do something proactive against poaching. Not only for us, but for the whole Bela Bela area.
