We do not allow guests for this experience and all participants must take part in the full keeper experience.
Elephant Eden at Noah's Ark operates a Protected Contact management system. All activities are done through a protective barrier. There will be no physical contact and you will not be in the same enclosed area as the elephants at any time during the experience.
