One of the most amazing experiences one can hope to have is an elephant safari in Africa!
Starting off with the most sublime – is an elephant back safari – which – if you want the real thing – only occurs in Botswana. It is expensive, but to be frank, it is an experience of a lifetime and one really cannot put a price to the privilege of spending around three or four days, immersed in an elephant herd, spending time with adults and calves alike, riding them, understanding their behaviour and being accepted into their family.
Have a look at this latest video which shows a three day old baby called Warona at Abu’s Camp in the Okavango Delta in Botswana, where this is filmed.
One can either take a three/four day elephant safari in the Okavango Delta, or perhaps take a four hour walk with three elephants and Doug Groves, a zoologist – who explains every facet of his habituated elephants, as you walk with them and they place their trunks either on your shoulder or in your hand – little can be so moving! We also arrange wonderful safaris to the most elephant rich regions in Africa – being Botswana, Zimbabwe, Tanzania and Kenya!
