Hohenwald is home to the Elephant Sanctuary, but the only way to see the elephants is by visiting the Elephant Welcome Center, just a short drive from Clifton.


Visit The Discovery Center

Increasing public knowledge is key to creating a world where elephants no longer live under constant threat of poaching, habitat loss, conflict, or capture. The Elephant Discovery Center offers hands-on self-guided exhibits and educational programming that explores the many ways elephants shape our world.
