Foster An Elephant
The cost to take care of an elephant
It’s an expensive exercise taking care of an elephant. Food, veterinary care, housing and human resources all amount to approximately R30,000.00 per elephant per month. This cost is fixed, regardless of visitor numbers.
Why foster an elephant
Following the extraordinary interactions they have enjoyed, so many of our guests have expressed an interest in fostering one of the Camp Jabulani elephants. We have therefore made available various fostering options for the younger elephants of the herd. These elephants will never be utilised for elephant back safaris, although the expense for their care is still absorbed as part of the operation.
