Elephant-back Safaris

In the minds of many people, elephants represent something wise and essentially timeless, the opportunity to interact with them in the Okavango Delta in Botswana can be a very emotional experience.

Here you are given the chance of interacting with a group of habituated African elephants, and exploring the lagoons and plains of the delta that is their natural habitat.

Game viewing from the back of an elephant gives you an obvious height advantage when looking for animals, you travel quite slowly and surprisingly silently, but can cross all sorts of terrain in order to get close to the local wildlife. This is not a cheap way to explore Africa, but it is a unique experience and the ultimate in 4 x 4!
