Elephant Back Safaris
This dreamlike adventure offers magical moments as well as the opportunity to come in close contact with wildlife. Meet Jabulani, the elephant that was rescued as a baby, and the twelve trained elephants that were brought down from Zimbabwe together with their grooms, as the invasion of farms by war veterans had placed their future in jeopardy. The love and respect shown these elephants are obvious - and this affection is returned. The elephants seem to enjoy the ride as much as you will! Your elephant back safari of approximately an hour and twenty minutes will also include a talk about elephant behavior beforehand and refreshments afterwards.
