Sit atop an elephant while it gracefully and silently takes you on a journey through the African veld. Feel the elephant’s strength as he breaks branches and feeds on the way, or as he powers over hills or through slight dips. Your elephant handler will enlighten you about the flora and fauna in our reserve as well as answer any questions you may have.
Elephants need stimulation, enrichment and the freedom to behave naturally. They need a gentle, minimal amount of exercise per day for their physical and mental health. An elephant can comfortably carry up to 25% of its body weight.
You are likely to encounter Giraffe, Wildebeest, Red Hartebeest, Kudu, Waterbuck, Impala, Eland, Zebra, Ostriches and other game at close quarters on your walk.
