Can you please confirm what you paid for the elephant experience? Judging from the reviews it looks well worth it. Thanks

Hi there! My boyfriend is a commercial pilot and over the December holidays he had the privelege of visiting the beautiful Baines Camp. He had an amazing time and we sure would like to visit the camp together again someday in thw near future. My question however, you might find quite random. He couldnt stop talking about the lovely bathroom products that he got to use and has been looking for something similar eversince- but for the life of him cant remember the products name. I was wondering if you would be so kind as to provide me with the name of the products as well as maybe a reference as to where in SA we might find it. Thank you in advance!! My next correspondence will for sure be me making a booking to come see for myself what he has been raving about! Cant wait to explore and experience the place as a couple.

Hello - thank you for your question. It is called Africology and if you Google it you will find stockists in South Africa. Hope that helps! Best regards, Sanctuary Retreats
