Pachyderm Package – Old Bad Code


If you love elephants, the Pachyderm Package is for you! This tour combines a private facility tour for those participating that day (not with the general public) with an additional hands-on full contact experience with our African Elephants. Get up close and personal with one of these remarkable animals in a two hour adventure. Guests will have the opportunity to socialize with an elephant and even help give one of our pachyderm friends a bath. We’ll help make sure you walk away with photographs and video of your once-in-a-lifetime experience.
