desert springs

ELEPHANT MEADOW 

Elephant Meadow is a large paddock enclosure (located alongside the concrete car park, just as the entry to the repeat circuit route for the Road Safari), where visitors can view the elephants grazing in their specially designed paddock. 

The elephants can enjoy wallowing, grazing and browsing from the trees in this enclosure and gives them a variety of spaces to explore, during their day.  

Although there is no talk or demonstration at the moment, due to Government restrictions. The herd will generally move down to Elephant Meadow from their Road Safari paddock at around 1pm, until 3pm when they'll be taken out for their daily walk by keepers.
