See elephants like you never have before! Join us for this Wild Encounter opportunity at the International Conservation Center located in Somerset County. This exciting 45-minute experience will include a discussion about the elephants at the ICC, an up-close elephant training observation, and a Q&A session with elephant care experts.

These encounters run weekly through the winter and early spring on Thursdays and Saturdays at 1:00 p.m. Experiences could be canceled, refunded, or rescheduled due to weather conditions.

Tours are semi-private experiences. If the entire six slots are not booked with your reservation, then additional spots will be available to other members of the public.
