Greenway Woods, situated on the outskirts of White River is not only the perfect place to stay in White River, but it is also close to many of the Lowveld’s sterling attractions.
It’s undeniable that Elephants are the most majestic animals. While visiting White River it would be worth your while to take a trip to Hazyview and visit the sanctuary, Elephant Whispers. Elephant Whispers opened in December 2007 and has quickly become the place to go if you want to interact with these intelligent gentle giants.
Feeding, riding and walking with the elephants are the most exciting activities to enjoy.
At Elephant Whispers you will have a choice of different activities that you can do with the elephants. You will get the opportunity to actually touch an elephant, feeling the texture of the wrinkled skin on their bodies to feeling the unique silky skin under their ears. You will be given pellets that the elephants love, and be able to feed them as they curiously come up to you. When feeding them, you can even massage the elephant’s tongue.
Guests are able to spend the morning taking a walk through the bush with an elephant as it goes about its daily feeding routine. Groups of six elephants will happily take you on their back for a stroll through the bush. Experienced elephant handlers will saddle up the elephants and stay with you as you experience this laid back meander. At any time during the walk, you can get off the elephant and walk with them.
