Our elephant safari takes a very leisurely pace set by the elephants themselves through the diverse valley bushveld, ravine and forest habitat and is in no way strenuous. The walk allows you to interact with, feed and observe the elephants in their natural surroundings while our trained and qualified handlers share their specialised knowledge and insight into both the elephants’ behaviour and the area’s unique eco-system.
After the walk we offer you the exhilarating experience of riding these magnificent animals - revel in the natural beauty of the environs and its wildlife from your lofty seat as these gentle giants amble through the African bush. At the conclusion of the ride enjoy a close-up view of the elephants swimming and frolicking in their favoured waterhole from the Restaurant deck - no guarantee though that you won’t get sprayed with a trunkful of water !
