Elephant Back Safaris

A once in a lifetime safari adventure - at one with nature, following in the footsteps of the ancients...

We offer you the exhilarating experience of riding these magnificent animals. Revel in the natural beauty of the environs and its wildlife from your lofty seat as these gentle giants amble through the African bush.
