About Us

The Elephant Reintegration Trust has been established by four passionate individuals with the vision & dream of developing an elephant refuge reserve in South Africa which will provide a secure wild environment for retired, commercially used elephants from various captive environments. These elephants will be reintegrated back into the wild where they can live out their remaining years, with dignity, as wild elephants.


To establish and maintain a refuge and reintegration reserve for elephants from any background.


The long-term vision of the elephant refuge is to have a viable, fully integrated, well balanced population of free-ranging elephants on the reserve, with the potential of re-location to suitable environs where applicable or realizing the potential of creating corridors which allows for the natural migration of elephants along elephant migratory routes.
