Elephants are truly one of the planet’s most incredible species. Highly-intelligent and sociable, yet increasingly under threat due to hunting and the large-scale destruction of their habitat.
However, across the world, from Southern Asia, to Eastern Africa, there are a myriad excellent sanctuaries who are seeking to alter this trend by providing refuge for these majestic animals, and who offer visitors the rare opportunity to observe and interact with them in their natural habitat.

Yes, most sanctuaries allow children of all ages provided they are accompanied by an adult.
Yes, most sanctuaries will allow visitors to photograph the elephants.
Although this is possible in some places, it is not considered natural, safe or ethical for untrained visitors to ride elephants, and therefore ethical sanctuaries will not offer this activity.
Although swimming with elephants is a popular activity which is offered in some places, much like riding, it is not considered natural, safe or ethical for untrained visitors to swim with elephants, and therefore ethical sanctuaries will not offer this activity.
Rob was a fantastic guide. The trip was very enjoyable and Robs knowledge and expertise were great. Would defo recommend
Excellent service from start to finish. I booked the National 3 Peasks challenge in 24 hours. i had regular communication from Rob and the team prioe to the event checking in on my progress, which really spurred me on as well as a helpful fitness plan i has to folow. For the challenge itself Rob and Tim really helped put the group at ease, and was very encouraging. Such a credit to business. i would not hesitate at all in recommending bookitlist to friends and family and will define use again in the future. Thank you for pushing me to finish the challenge!

The Amazon rainforest accounts for 20% of the world’s oxygen. If that alone doesn’t blow your mind, the wonders hidden inside this jungle will.
Swimming with dolphins with the beautiful backdrop of the ocean is like living a scene from a movie. And you’ll no doubt see other marine life too!
