Situated between Plettenberg Bay and Knysna, the Knysna Elephant Park (KEP) was founded in 1994, making it the first facility in South Africa to house and care for orphaned, relocated and rescued elephants. Harry and Sally, orphaned during a culling operation in the Kruger National Park, were the first orphaned calves to arrive at KEP. Today, they still walk the park proudly, Harry as the dominant bull and Sally as the matriarch of the herd.
Over two decades, KEP has cared for and raised more than 30 elephants. Some have remained at KEP, while others have been moved to other reserves in the Eastern and Western Cape, to best meet their emotional, bonding and welfare needs.
Elephant encounters start in the Interpretation Centre, where visitors are introduced to the elephants through stunning photographic and informative displays. Also on offer are elephant-back rides, sunset walks with elephants and exclusive sundowner tours.
