Holiday Elephant Tours

We're decking out the barn for our 2019 Christmas Celebration! This holiday event will ONLY be available on Dec. 7th & 14th. Sign up below to reserve your spot!

Visitors can take this opportunity to share some Holiday Cheer with some very special guests - Santa & Mrs. Claus, Santa’s Helpers, the Ele-Elves and our beloved pachyderms!

This unique event will allow visitors to capture one-of-a-kind photos with our Holiday celebrities and make a memory that the family will never forget.

The Holiday Tour will include the following:

  • An hour and a half unique Elephant Encounter. EAF staff (Santa’s Helpers) will provide a guided tour of facility to meet our Pachyderm residents and provide educational demonstrations of elephant husbandry and therapeutic/enrichment regiments.

  • All visitors will be served hot cocoa and Christmas cookies. Definitely a rare encounter to have Holiday refreshments with an elephant!

  • EAF Guests will board the Holly Trolly which will take visitors deep into the woods (weather permitting) to have a close encounter with EAF Elephants.

  • Participants will have the opportunity to hand feed an elephant a Christmas cake! This experience is unforgettable and tasty!

  • Adults and children can visit with Mr. & Mrs. Claus and tell Santa what they want for Christmas. Families should take advantage of this great photo opportunity.

All children 12 and under will receive a personalized wrapped holiday package to commemorate their Holiday elephant experience:

  • Each Child Guest will be included on Santa's "Nice" list that will be presented in front of the audience by one of EAF’s very own Elephants!

  • Child Guests will also receive a personalized gift package from Santa, which includes:

  • A souvenir holiday "In The Ark" mug.

  • Holiday Ele-Bell.

  • A framed Special Edition Holiday photo of EAF’s youngest herd member – Dori Marie.

  • Holiday treats.

  • A one-of-a-kind customized EAF Coloring Book.

The unique opportunity will take place only on Dec. 7th at 1pm and Dec. 14th at 12pm & 2pm. Reservations are $50 per person. Sign up below to book your holiday tour now.
