African Elephant Rides

Teachers- Add an African Elephant ride to your students visit, they will love it! Fun and Exciting! An experience they will never forget!

With the rapid decline in elephants due to poaching for ivory and habitat destruction, now is the time to help save the elephants for future generations to enjoy. By actual contact with the living species at a zoological park students are in a better position to appreciate these magnificent animals.
