ELEPHANTS REST: African Garden Gallery
~ ~ Gallery opens from start of October til end of April ~ ~
SAT & SUN 11-5pm
Each October to end of April we open our home & garden to the public. This is our way of raising funds for SHELDRICK ELEPHANT TRUST who rescue and rehabilitate orphaned elephants and Rhino back to the wild.
Our African Garden Gallery is often referred to as a secret oasis. It is a relaxing ambient place where the sounds of the African bush around you. Enjoy some hot or cold drinks and bites, or enjoy a beer or wine from our bar. We offer Devonshire tea, coffee, various hot & cold drinks, scones, cake, Hot samosa's & bruschetta. We love to stop and have a chat when we can and you are welcome to browse thru any of our personal travel coffee table books.
We also offer PRIVATE NIGHT DINNER UNDER THE STARS which is available for 6-8 guests by booking your preferred night.
In our indoor CURIO SHOP we do have a selection of items brought back from our trips through Africa.
After the success of our past CULTURAL EXCHANGES we are now preparing for our final travel gift to our Maasai friends Samson and his wife Purity who live in rural Maasai land in Kenya. Samson is now a Inspector of schools and keen to learn about teaching strategies here in Australia in the hope of learning something new to implement back home. We are working towards a 8 - 10 week trip to Aust, beginning in mid April 2024.
TRAVEL ADVISE service For those of you who are thinking of taking a trip to Africa and would just like to chat about different options and what to expect. We are always happy to have a chat and share our knowledge with you. This is a free service, we can give you ideas & options available for the budget you have, discuss the type of things you want to see and do and where to find them, and much more. We have travelled Africa almost each year since 1999 with the longest trip being 15 months, when we took our own expedition vehicle over to Kenya in Sept 2013 and slowly made out way down to South Africa. So we are happy to share our knowledge and experience with you.
