It is not often one can climb onto the back of an African Elephant and set off at an easy rolling pace in search of other wild game; wild elephant, giraffe, buffalo and much more. This is an elephant ‘experience’ and the guides are highly trained experts in the behaviour of elephants and the wildlife around them.
˝ day trails are available both in the morning and afternoon.
The trails begin at Thorntree Lodge in the Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park which is an attractive lodge overlooking the Zambezi River. On arrival, a short introductory talk and safety-briefing guests are introduced to the elephants and their handlers before mounting the great animals. The handler and no more than two guests on each animal then head off through the riverine bush.
At the end of the ride, guests are brought back to the Elephant Boma to dismount and interact with the elephants on the ground giving the guides an opportunity to make an interesting and informative explanation about the African Elephant and their relationship with man.
