Visit The Elephant Discovery Center

An expansion of the Elephant Discovery Center is currently underway. Visitors will be able to experience the next phase of our educational outreach—an outdoor classroom and interpretative corridor adjoining our facility in downtown Hohenwald! 

The exhibits there will focus on "wild" elephants: the difference in species, diets, habitats, and social structures.

Following the completion of the corridor, construction will shift inside for the installation of interactive exhibits and a 40-person theater.

Currently open twice weekly to the public, visitors to the Elephant Discovery Center have access to:

- Live streaming video of the elephants via a network of 13 cameras (EleCams), strategically placed throughout The Sanctuary’s three habitats

- A photo exhibit featuring The Sanctuary elephants

- The Elephant Sanctuary Gift Shop, offering a full line of our Sanctuary merchandise—all proceeds directly benefit the elephants in our care

Additional public presentations are made on the third Saturday of each month. Private group presentations are available by appointment throughout the week. For more information, contact 931-796-6500 ext: 101 or email
