An elephant back safari in Victoria Falls takes you on never to be forgotten elephant rides on one of the most majestic and largest animals in Africa, the African Elephant. This unforgettable elephant encounter allows you to interact with the elephants and get a closer insight into the world of these intelligent gentle giants.
This ecologically friendly game viewing method takes you on an enjoyable silent ride through game trails seeing the famous African grasslands and wildlife from an entirely unique perspective. The elephant is a silent mover through the African landscape as his unique feet cushion their enormous weight and almost no sound is made on the dry dusty ground. This allows you to get up close to other elephant and view buffalo, zebra, wildebeest, giraffe and a variety of other wildlife.
Seated on top of the wide expanse of the elephants back in a specially made seat, you will enjoy a unique game viewing experience on your African elephant safari, gain a respect for these incredible mammals as well as appreciate the feeling of being one with the vast African landscape and all the beauty it has to offer.
Most tour operators offer a daily sunrise safari and an evening outing around the protected game parks with time to feed the elephants and interact with them. This is another highlight of the elephant back safari which is both educational and extremely humbling – being able to get so close to these enormous animals.
