We visited The Knysna Elephant Park and it was a blast! There were nine elephants present and the adult elephants were very mischievous. As we were touring their sleeping quarters I noticed their space was small with barley any room to roam around. I was surprised to discover that people could spend the night in the same room as the elephants for a special fee. I wonder for a second is it comfortable and how cold at night does it get? When we arrived to see the elephants the were lined up in a row behind a metal bar. They seemed to be very trained and broken in. We were able to feed the adults elephants by handing the food to their tusks but we had to throw the baby elephants food on the ground because they were not trained yet. It was a cool experiencing the elephant’s eat food from my hand with their trunk!
