Visit The Elephant Sanctuary's Welcome Center
All of our Girls are retired from zoos and circuses where they lived their lives on exhibit to the public. To ensure minimal intrusion on the sanctity of their Sanctuary, the elephant habitat is not open to the public. The Elephant Sanctuary is, however, dedicated to educating the public about these amazing animals in our care.
The staff and volunteers at the Welcome Center invite the public to stop by located 4 miles from the elephant habitat on Main Street in Hohenwald. The Welcome Center features:
While at the Welcome Center, visitors may also access our network of 13 cameras (Elecam System) which are strategically placed throughout all three habitats, and enjoy live streaming video of the Girls in their natural environment without intruding on their Sanctuary. The staff and volunteers welcome everyone to visit and learn about our Girls and their lives in Sanctuary.
