African Elephant Keeper Talk & Training Demo

Stomp your way over to Safari Africa for a TON of fun! Talk with an African Elephant keeper and learn how we use positive reinforcement and protective contact to teach the elephants that they can trust their keeper. Through this trust the elephant learns to cooperate with their keeper and perform behaviors that are taught to help with medical procedures. Don’t forget to bring your own elephant trunks and wave “Hello!” to your elephant friends and their caring keepers!
