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

If you can't see the elephants at Elephant Meadow, they may be in their main Road Safari paddock or out on a walk with their keepers in the private 500-acre woodland where they can enjoy grazing on a huge variety of trees and grasses, dust bathing, or swimming in the huge private lake.
