It's All About Elephants - Two Tails RanchAll About Elephants Two Tails Ranch near Gainesville, FL is an elephant care facility offering privatey guided tours. The privately owned ranch boards elephants – and other exotic creatures – in need of temporary or permanent housing.

You don’t expect to see elephants in Florida and yet the coast’s climate is just about perfect for them, being nearly identical to their native homelands.

Two Tails Ranch was founded in 1984 as both temporary boarding and a permanent home for elephants in need. Some have come here in retirement, many are only here while their exhibits are being prepared. Others still, come for training, medical, or even behavioral reasons.
