My family visited Two Tails Ranch yesterday and we were really impressed by the hard work and dedication the owners put in to the well being and care of their elephants and various other animals.We learned all sorts of interesting facts about the plight of...More
My daughter and two of her friends from NY came to visit and I booked tickets to see the elephants sanctuary. Great place for children and to spend for educational purposes. My 9 yr old twins learned a lot about the elephants and if you...More
This is NOT an elephant sanctuary! This is a woman and her family having elephants and other animals in small cages. These animals were purchased not rescued. This is nothing more than a zoo in a persons back yard. By going there you are enabling...More
Be warned: Two Tails Ranch is NOT a legitimate sanctuary/rescue. If you care about animal welfare or are visiting Two Tails Ranch to support elephant conservation efforts, I would encourage you to think twice before visiting this location.
While I hope that my review can...More
This place supports the abuse of animals and they are affiliated with a circus. Guests are allowed to ride the elephants even though this is harmful to elephants and they have the animals do the same tricks they did in the circus as well as...More
Patricia does an amazing job!! The elephants are extremely well taken care of. The bond is just beautiful to see. Appointments are necessary and made a month or less in advance. This is an absolute must as these beautiful animals are highly endangered.
I brought the Extreme Elephant Tour for my mother, it was a birthday present. It was one of the best gifts I ever got her. My mother, boyfriend and I had a wonderful time. Not only did we get to ride, wash, feed, pet, and...More
My daughter asked to visit for her 13th birthday. We loved every minute. We took the “extreme encounter” and really enjoyed the extras. We washed an elephant, took loads of close up and personal photos, rode one briefly, as well as other things. It was...More
I paid for the extreme encounter and it was well worth it. All of the elephants are well taken care of and you can tell that the owner knows a lot about them. They are her babies and she takes care of them. It really...More

Hi. The Extreme Elephant Tour lasted about 2 hours. After the regular tour and elephant ride, the Extreme tour continues with the elephant bath. That was the real fun experience. The elephant laid on her side and we used a brush to scrub her. Afterwards, we took personal pictures with her, as many as we wanted.
The staff will take photos for you as you wash the elephant and pose with her. I paid for an Extreme for my mother and I, so I can't answer if they will allow anyone past the fence during the bath. I would advise you to contact Patricia the owner about it. Also you have to purchase at least 2 Elephant Encounters.

A visit to Two Tails takes careful planning. Read the website carefully and be patient. They don’t take reservations until two or three weeks ahead and will get a full schedule quickly. I think the cheapest ticket is around 25 and you can add on things like in person elephant pics (like touching their ear kind of pics). The elephants are family members and patrons must be respectful. You are clearly helping them fund the care of their mission as opposed to a ‘show ticket’. I found it to be a very special experience and worth the difficulty.
