Elephant Back Trails
There are different elephant herds that are used for elephant-back trails in the area around Victoria Falls and Livingstone. Many of these trails follow ancient game trails through spectacular wilderness areas and lush riverine scenery. Aside from getting clients closer to nature and showing them the incredible intelligence of the elephants, trail guides also aim to increase awareness of local elephant conservation initiatives and the important role these initiatives play in keeping these magnificent creatures safe for the future.
Most elephant rides last roughly an hour whilst total interaction time with the elephant is close to 3 hours. On the ride itself, there are good opportunities for viewing lots of other wildlife, including a wide variety of plains game and birdlife as well as hippos and crocodiles in the areas around the Zambezi River.
