Although Wildlife Safari promises an experience similar to that of an African wildlife tour, the elephants living in the park lead lives that bear little resemblance to their home on the continent's vast expanse.
When not being put on display in their enclosures, the animals are occasionally made to perform tasks for paying guests - like washing cars with their trunks, fearing painful punishment lest they comply.
"The truth is that zoos prematurely age elephants, forcing them to live in inadequate captive conditions that include lack of space and hard flooring that induce arthritis and other problems in relatively young animals," writes IDA. "Add to that the stress caused by fear of physical punishment with the bullhook and you have one inhumane Wildlife Safari."
