Our guest David wrote this poem during his experience at Elephantstay. Thank you!

Silent giant,
What are you thinking as you look into my eyes?
You might wonder about me.
Perhaps in the quiet, you are my teacher,
And be questioning my strangeness.
I try to be attentive to you,
And I attempt to listen
By I confess my ignorance of your lesson.
There is a real need to seek further understanding of you,
My mentor and friend
You are truly, a ray of light, in my life
My dear Rasamee.

Cavalia Visit

On 12 October 2014 a group of performers / trainers from Cavalia visited Elephantstay
and the Elephant Kraal and Village. We witnessed training where elephants and mahouts showcased their power and skills. Some dreams came true.
