Grey Elephant

Elephants are one of the animals that can be unlocked in the sanctuary.

Like all other sanctuary animals, players can only have two of them.


Elephants have two different appearances: grey and brown.

Grey Elephant Brown Elephant

If players tap on the grey elephant, it finds a pink duster and starts to sweep the ground with it.

If players tap on the brown elephant, it picks up some mud from the ground with its trunk and throws it onto its back for a mud bath.


Logbook Elephants

Unlike other animals, elephants cannot be bought. Players must unlock them by finding puzzle pieces (which are collected in a log book). 36 pieces are required for each animal.

Elephant House

Players must then pick up an elephant house to be able to place the animal in the sanctuary. The elephant house is free and can be obtained from the Shop. ShopShop Icon.

Once the elephant house is placed in the sanctuary, a crate containing the animal will be "airlifted" into the sanctuary by balloons.

Players get one animal for free when they first unlock the sanctuary. The animal is chosen at random and could be the elephant, hippo or giraffe.


Wheat Bundle

When given a wheat bundle elephants eat then roam the sanctuary for ten hours and finally fall asleep. Players can immediately wake them up to receive 25 xpExperience per animal. Elephants stay asleep otherwise.

Elephants which have been woken up but are not fed for a long while cannot fall asleep and wander around looking sleepy and tired.


Each elephant unlocks specific decorations as listed below:

  • The grey elephant unlocks Baobab Trees & Termite Mounds.
  • The brown Elephant unlocks Tall Grass & Dry Logs.

Baobab Tree Termite Mound Tall Grass Dry Log

With each animal you are given the first pair of decorations for free. They are unlocked in the Shop when you get the first animal. Players may purchase more decorations with coins.
