Elephant Eye to Eye

The only place in Australia that you can get this up close and personal with an elephant!

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 encounter is sold out until June 2017 and no further bookings are presently available. You can still register your interest by clicking the Enquire button below and you will be contacted when the encounter becomes available again.
