Elephant Back Safaris


The once-in-a-life-time, definitely tick-off-the-bucket-list opportunity of riding on the back of an African Elephant in the tourist resort town of Victoria Falls an incredible experience that is not to be missed.

$ 150.00

Duration: Approx 3½ hours:

The activity is offered by Shearwater Victoria Falls. They have a herd of twelve elephants reside on the Jafuta Game Reserve, a few kilometers outside of Victoria Falls.  Each Elephant has formed a close bond with their personal Induna (elephant handler) who live permanently with the elephants and understand each elephant’s unique character and traits.  Participate in a Breakfast or Sundowner Elephant Back Safari and seize the opportunity to ride on these magnificent animals in their natural habitat.

You will learn about their life stories, behaviour patterns and anatomy from the knowledgeable Indunas who accompany every safari. After the 45 minute ride in the African bush, where abundant wildlife is often encountered, you will participate in a close-up interaction with your elephant during which time you will feed, touch and bond with your gentle giant.
