Out of all the activities that I outlined on South Africa, I have to say this was one of my favorite places that we visited.
A stone throw away from Knysna on the South African Garden Route, on the road towards Plettenberg Bay is the Knysna Elephant Park.
The park is very well maintained with herds of Elephants. The great thing about this park is that the elephants are very well kept and looked after. Animals are respected and looked after.
One of the highlights are the ability to ride on these majestic creatures. Their keepers are with you all the way to keep you safe and to give you information about the hers, elephants in general etc…
The park offers a number of options for you to choose however my recommendation is to ride the elephant, with this package you get the option to feed the animals and also get the opportunity to stroke them.
Overall, this is an activity that you can spent a ½ day or even a bit longer at.
Next time you find yourself on the Garden route, make sure this is one of your activities to include.
