Elephant Encounters

We are SO excited to announce that Elephants will be back in 2018! Tickets are available NOW!!  The retreat is held in our Elephant facility, meaning all events are held rain or shine! The African elephant herd of three girls will be vacationing at Wilstem starting March 10th through November 4th. Here’s how you can experience them:

  • The SPA APPOINTMENT is a two hour experience.  It consists of a small group for the first hour where guests will actually participate in bathing the elephants and giving them a pedicure!  Bath time is followed by the hour long Educational Seminar which is included in the price.

Spa Appointments are held Sunday-Saturday at 9:30 and 2:30 EDT.  The cost is $69.00 for adults, $59.00 for children under 12.  Children 2 and under are FREE. NO OPEN TOED SHOES FOR THE SPA!
-Depending on the season, times may vary for the Spa Appointment, so please refer to the availability calendar for each event by clicking the BOOK NOW button!

  • The EDUCATIONAL SEMINAR is a one hour experience where you’ll learn all you would want to know about these amazing creatures and you’ll get to ask questions, touch them and their ivory and take once in a lifetime photos with the girls!

Educational Seminars are held Sunday-Saturday at 10:30 and 3:30 EDT.  The cost is $25.00 per person.  (No price breaks for children.)  Children 2 and under are FREE.
