Elephant Back Safaris and Interactions
Doing an elephant safari is something the majority of people will never have the opportunity to do, maybe a once in a lifetime experience where you can come close and even touch these magnificent animals. We are privileged to have access to two domesticated elephants that live within a close-by reserve whom provides emotional and moving elephant experiences through interaction.
Highly recommended to anyone who would like to experience a close and personal encounter combined with the best possible education of the African Elephant, the most intelligent giant of the African bush. You can have ease of mind if you are concerned about the animals as the training techniques used were based on the principles of trust, ask and reward which is the total opposite to the methods used in India where the actual spirit of the elephant is broken.
All elephant experiences starts with a brief introduction and a safety talk. The informative walk-and-talk takes a very leisurely pace set by the elephants themselves and is in no way strenuous. The walk allows you to interact with, feed and observe the elephants in their natural habitat.
Riding these gentle giants gives an excellent perspective of the area – at a peaceful and gentle pace, while the trained and qualified handlers share their specialized knowledge and insight into both the elephants and this unique ecosystem. Your elephant experiences will end with the opportunity to feed the elephants with their favourite game pellets.
Please take note: Children under the age of 5 years is not allowed to do the elephant ride only the elephant interaction. Children 4 & 3 years pay full price and children 2 years old pays 50% for the interaction.
