ELEPHANT ENCOUNTER

A once in a lifetime insight into these gentle giants.

ELEPHANT ENCOUNTER

Located near Thorntree River Lodge, 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.  Together with this ecologically friendly method of game viewing, a strong emphasis is placed on an Elephant experience rather than just an Elephant ride and guests are encouraged to interact with these majestic and intelligent African mammals.  The training techniques used by Zambezi Elephant Trails are based on the positive reinforcement method as opposed to the controversial “discipline and submission” technique commonly associated with Asian Elephants.

Our five adult African Elephants, Madinda, Marula, Liwa, Danny, and Mashumbi each offer two guests an unparalleled viewpoint of the mighty Zambezi River and surrounding bush area of Mosi-Oa-Tunya National Park. Chavaruka born to Mashumbi in 2004 and Nandi born to Liwa in 2007 will carry just one guest each. We also have the proud addition of Sekuti, a young orphan the herd brought home from the bush at the end of January 2010 and our latest member of the herd is a little bull called Muyuni, born to Mashumbi and Bop on 29th December 2013. Both babies accompany the walk with clients, frolicking along with the herd.
