Elephant Back Safaris

Wild Horizons Elephant Camp

Wild Horizons owns and manages two lodges in the Victoria Falls area in northern Zimbabwe. Imbabala Safari Camp overlooks the mighty Zambezi River - 45 minutes' drive from Victoria Falls. The intimate Elephant Camp, only 15 minutes by road from Victoria Falls, is located on a private wildlife estate. Road transfers in air-conditioned micro-buses to and from both lodges are available from all the major towns and airports in the area.

Elephant Camp

“An age-old concept - a new adventure”, aptly describes The Elephant Camp, which is situated only 20km west of Victoria Falls on 35 000 acres of privately owned wildlife estate. The Elephant Camp offers one of the newest and most thrilling safari experiences in Africa, making it possible to not only view wildlife from the back of an elephant, but more importantly to share a day in the life of an African elephant at close quarters. All elephants at The Elephant Camp, including Miz Ellie, Jumbo, Jock and Jack are orphans from culling operations, and rather than spending their lives in a safari park or zoo, far from their natural habitat, are able to interact with both humans and wild animals on a daily basis.

The Elephant Camp accommodates just 8 guests ensuring maximum interaction with the elephants as well as an intimate and homely atmosphere. Accommodation is in four thatched en suite chalets, with a central dining/lounge area, swimming pool with raised deck for meals outdoors or “under the stars”, all with sweeping views of the estate. A number of activities are offered, with emphasis on spending time with the elephants - either game viewing from their backs, picnicking with them on the estate, grooming and feeding them or just experiencing the pleasure of being close to such magnificent animals. Game drives, both day and night, as well as walking safaris and trips to Vic Falls are also included.

Elephant Back Safari

Join Wild Horizons for an extraordinary and exhilarating journey along ancient game trails. Seated comfortably on the back of natures true “king of the beasts”, experience an age old tradition whilst silently exploring the majestic Pilanesberg Reserve in Sun City, South Africa, or Woodlands Wildlife Estate in Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe.

Be witness to this mutually enriching and rewarding relationship between man and elephant in a modern day Africa. Sunrise, midmorning and sunset safaris are run daily, promising you much more than just a game-viewing experience, but rather a closer insight into the worlds largest land mammal, the African Elephant.

Group Interaction with Lunch / Dinner

Groups of up to 100 guests can be catered for at Victoria Falls Elephant Boma. Bush dinners or lunch BBQ’s can be taken with the elephant themselves, who of course provide the main attraction. An elephant presentation will be given, detailing their lifestyles and history and then guests can enjoy the opportunity to interact with these gentle giants on a very personal level. Afterwards sit down & relax whilst enjoying your meal with the elephants in the background either mud wallowing, swimming or just settling down to a meal themselves.
