Takes place within the Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park on the banks of the Zambezi River located approximately 10 km from Livingstone.

Zambezi Elephant Trails has established Zambia’s first “Elephant Camp” offering a once in a lifetime insight into these gentle giants.

Six african elephants, Madinda, Marula, Mashumbi, Lewa, Danny and Bop offer guests a chance to meet, touch and learn about elephants and to understand their willingness to act
under instruction.

The training techniques used by Zambezi Elephant Trails are based on the “perform and reward “ method as opposed to the controversial “discipline and submission” technique commonly associated with Asian elephants.

Upon arrival, tea, coffee and cordial is served – after which the guide will give a short introductory talk including safety aspects. The guests will then be introduced to the Elephants and their Handlers.

On mounting the Elephants, the Safari begins. The trails lead through riverine bush and shallow parts of the Zambezi River onto the islands. Halfway through the ride, guests will dismount and interact with the Elephants on the ground.

During interaction, the guide will give an informative talk on the African Elephant and its relationship with man.

Each Elephant is under the charge of a Handler – the Guide carries a first aid kit and handheld radio.

The Safari ends with a full English Breakfast or good choice of snacks (depending which safari is booked) after which guests may view a video of their personal Elephant experience. Videos are available for purchase and will be delivered to guests’ hotels that evening or the following morning (depending on which Safari is booked).
