Watch until the end for a gorgeous sanctuary view!
For those who have wondered about just how robust and healthy that Elephant Sanctuary Brazil is, we thought this drone video might offer some perspective. At the beginning, you get a close-up look at Rana, Mara, and Bambi, with Mara doing a bit of dusting. As the picture expands, you can see the land that will eventually become an expansion for the female Asian habitat. The drone then flies over the ESB office and looks north toward the female African habitat.
As the camera pans up and begins to move, the elephants surprisingly begin to seem smaller in size, compared to the vast expanses of land – wild spaces, yards, and ponds – that surrounds them. Eventually, you get a glimpse of just part of the scenic vista that is the sanctuary’s border. This is just part of the land that the five elephant residents currently enjoy, and what is waiting for others, once they are able to join us.

I need this drone video at least once a month !!!!!! Please do MORE of these, especially when the residents are walking around, so we can see them in their OWN surroundings !!!!!
Anne saysApril 20, 2022 at 1:30 am
Spectacular scenery! Thanks for sharing.
John saysApril 20, 2022 at 8:36 am
Fantastic! Do the elephants wander the entire property, or stay on the “paths” mostly? Are they able to navigate the hillier parts?
Sara saysApril 20, 2022 at 10:31 am
The elephants stay in the yard(s) they have access to and not the whole property. That’s how we are able to make sure that elephants like Lady have a safe space to be. These days, the three girls you see here spend most of their time in the largest yard, which is Yard 5. They wander the entire property within that area. Some of the paths they make themselves, but they certainly aren’t afraid of making their way into pretty dense areas or over inclines. Even Lady will take on some hills when she’s in the mood.
Marylouise Sillman saysApril 20, 2022 at 9:10 am
Do the Elephants roam to the far off acres….if so do they return to their “home” at night for feeding time?
Sara saysApril 20, 2022 at 10:29 am
They stay in a specific yard each night – but you can see how large those yards can be. So, yes they wander, but they don’t have access to all of the property at once. Generally they don’t come to the barn that often, and they get the majority of their diet from natural sources. But we bring them snacks every day and they definitely know when it’s time for treats.
Denise Spinharney saysApril 20, 2022 at 1:19 pm
This is beautiful. Have you done any of the landscaping or is it all natural design? This is just incredible, thank you for all you do for the elephants.
Sara saysApril 20, 2022 at 1:30 pm
Most of the “landscaping” is done by the elephants, who get their natural diet through eating from trees, grass, vines, and other greenery. We do bushhogging to cut the grass when it gets particularly high, as the elephants prefer eating the shorter grasses over the longer ones. We have created some of the paths through the sanctuary, but elephants have created their own paths as well.
Deb saysApril 20, 2022 at 4:28 pm
Thank you for the beautiful video! It’s so nice to see all the land🐘💕
Katie Howard saysApril 20, 2022 at 6:53 pm
It does indeed provide a different perspective AND illustrates the peace imbued there!
Anita Janusz saysApril 25, 2022 at 4:50 am
That video took my breath away! And I watch it daily….still….Just enjoying all that greenery and huge, huge space. You guys have truly chosen a piece of paradise for the elephants. They all deserve the best after life time of misery, enslavement, confinement, loneliness, abuses and pain…and now they have the best! This home….Forever grateful here…xoxoxox
JoAnn Merriman-Eaton saysApril 29, 2022 at 12:38 pm
I really appreciated this arial view. It is so much more vast than I imagined. My question was answered in previous comments about how to keep track of the girls, and if they are able to roam the whole campus. Thanks again GSE for your expertise and care of these precious elephants. I understand we see the best parts of sanctuary life, and also understand in this type of operation there is a tremendous amount of hidden work and maintenance . So appreciated.
Sara saysApril 29, 2022 at 12:56 pm
Thank you so much.
