Make those special moments even more memorable at Elephant Whispers

African elephant involved in a wedding proposel


Everyone agrees that a wedding proposal should be once-in-a-lifetime occasion. And what could be more memorable than an elephant passing a basket to a prospective bridegroom who then gets down on one knee and offers up a ring to the object of his affections? The elephants involved in these epic African engagement ceremonies were all saved from planned culling operations by the Elephants for Africa Forever programme and their training has been run along lines of mutual human-animal respect and trust. Even the hardest of hearts would agree that popping the question on the banks of the Sabie River with an audience of attentive elephants is the ideal way to start a life of love together. They say an elephant never forgets and neither will you.

What could be more exciting than arriving for your wedding ceremony
on the back of a six ton African Elephant?

After an elephant shower and buffing of their impressive tusks, the six Elephant Whispers’ elephant arrive squeaky clean to collect the beautiful bride, and transport her in grand style for her walk down the aisle. The deck at the Elephant Whispers dam is a lovely, romantic setting for couples to exchange their wedding vows. After the service, the wedding party join the elephant for a wonderfully unique wedding photo shoot.

Today an elephant remembered my
name and brought me my beautiful
engagement ring in a basket!
What an amazing way to be proposed to!

Wow! What a wonderful experience,
definitely a day to remember!
Thank you for making my engagement a
day I will never forget.
What a clever ellie… bringing me such a
sparkly present in a basket!

Instead of a riding in a fancy carriage
to get married, I was transported in
much grander fashion – on top of Tembo!
Thanks Tembo for safely taking me
to my wedding ceremony!

A fantastic experience and the most
amazing photo’s on our honeymoon yet.
Thank you.
