Comments / picturesSonni Frank keeps his elephants on a 4, Ha former farm in Vorpommern, north Germany, containing grassfields, mudbaths and sand zones.

Although the elephants now and then are engaged in shows and some circus, this facility is classed as a Zoo, and maintain a very good standard of elephant managment. It is probably the only location within its category in Europe, with breeding potentials.
