Come Meet Our Beautiful Elephants!
The Preserve provides intimate, meaningful experiences between people and animals that generate a level of caring that cannot be achieved any other way.
This once-in-a-lifetime interactive experience allows you to fully immerse yourself with these amazing creatures. See first-hand what it takes to keep elephants fit and healthy as well as gain an understanding of the need for elephant conservation.
We educate visitors on the struggles wild elephants face and the effect of human/elephant conflict. The Preserve Elephant Experience offers you the opportunity to connect with these marvelous creatures on a spiritual level. Looking into an elephant’s eye will change how you feel about elephants forever.
