Elephant Eye to Eye

The only place in Australia that you can give an elephant a hug!

There is a reason this experience books out quickly, every single year.

Thanks to regular, reward-based training and the beautiful trust relationship between elephant and keeper, Tricia or Permai can meet you face-to-face with no barriers at all.

Offering fantastic photo opportunities and a private keeper-talk, Perth is the only zoo in Australia where you can pat the leathery, prickly warmness of their hide or feel the supple softness of their trunk-tip as you slip them a snack. Inspiring, informative and interactive, this is the perfect gift for someone who collects experiences in their life.

This is a highly exclusive experience with limited availability.
