Elephant Back SafarisElephant back safaris are one of the most thrilling safari experiences in Africa. These safaris not only make it possible to view wildlife from the back of an elephant, but perhaps more importantly, provide the unique opportunity to share a day in the life of the elephant. Whether it’s game viewing from their backs, picnicking with them in the bush, grooming, feeding or swimming with them, or simply experiencing the pleasure of being close to such magnificent animals, the encounter is truly unforgettable. The concept of elephant riding has been pioneered by dedicated conservationists who believe that sustained utilization of wildlife, (essentially, getting the elephants to pay for themselves), is the only means by which the elephant will survive in this modern world.
