It is not uncommon to fall in love with these 3 elephants as they will immediately climb in to your heart. Meeting them for the first time is a amazing and humbling experience. Our 3 baby elephants in Oudtshoorn are actually orphans from the Kruger National Park. Their parents were killed there by a farmer when the broke through fencing. They have since been adopted by the Knysna Elephant Park where they spent their first few years. An agreement between the Knysna Elephant Park and ourselves saw the 3 babies, come to Oudtshoorn to join our family as well as the Buffelsdrift Game Lodge family where they are home.
Now they spend there days roaming the veld at Buffelsdrift Game Lodge, getting trained by very good elephant trainers and guides. They are loved by all the staff as no one can resist them. They also love their daily interactions with visitors.
