ELEPHANTS REST: African Garden Gallery
�� �� Gallery opens from start of October til end of April �� ��
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 place to enjoy some hot or cold drinks and bites, or enjoy a beer or wine from our bar. We offer Devonshire tea, Plunger coffee, Iced coffee/chocolate etc, scones, cake, Hot samosa's. We love to stop and have a chat, and you can even browse thru any of our personal travel coffee table books.
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 2022.
With Covid19 now being a issue, we are not sure when we will get to Africa again, or when Samson & Purity will be able to come to Australia, but if and when it can happen, we will still honor their trip.
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 traveled 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.
