Zam­bezi Ele­phant Trails shall re­main flex­ible and make every ef­fort to ac­com­mod­ate the needs of such groups – tim­ings avail­able upon re­quest.

Cli­ents are picked up from their re­spect­ive hotel/lodge and trans­ferred to the Ad­ven­ture Zone of­fice in town. Check in is done at the of­fice be­fore cli­ents pro­ceed to the Mas­uwe es­tate. Upon ar­rival, tea, cof­fee and cor­di­als are served – after which the guide will give a short in­tro­duct­ory talk in­clud­ing all safety as­pects. Guests are then re­quired to sign an in­dem­nity. Guests are then in­tro­duced to our Ele­phant (Nkanyezi) and her Hand­ler.

On meet­ing the Ele­phant, the Sa­fari be­gins. The trail leads through the pristine bush and val­ley of the Mas­uwe River , which is home to nu­mer­ous spe­cies of wild­life, in­clud­ing, ele­phants, kudu, buf­falo , im­pala, leo­pard and some­times even lions. There is ex­cel­lent bird­ing with over 50 spe­cies to be sighted.

Our Ele­phant is under the charge of a Hand­ler – the trips are led by a qual­i­fied Guide, who is armed and car­ries a first aid kit and hand­held radio. At the end of the walk with the Ele­phant, cli­ents get to in­ter­act with her, feed­ing her and hav­ing a great op­por­tun­ity to get pho­tos taken with our amaz­ing Ele­phant.

The AM Sa­fari ends with a light break­fast con­sist­ing of muffins & pastries.
The PM sa­fari ends with a good choice of snacks and drinks.

The guests are then trans­ferred back to the of­fice where they can view the video of their per­sonal Ele­phant ex­per­i­ence. Videos are avail­able for pur­chase and will be de­livered to guests ho­tels that even­ing or the fol­low­ing morn­ing (de­pend­ing on which Sa­fari is booked).

There is no upper age limit. Chil­dren below the age of 5 years will only be taken by spe­cial re­quest. Guard­i­ans of Minors (under 15) will be re­quired to sign the in­dem­nity form on be­half of the minors. A Guard­ian must ac­com­pany chil­dren under the age of 15 throughout the trip.

There are no spe­cific health re­quire­ments for this activ­ity, and phys­ical dis­ab­il­it­ies will be con­sidered on an in­di­vidual basis. If a guest has any med­ical con­di­tions such as epi­lepsy, dia­betes or dan­ger­ous al­ler­gies etc, please en­sure that Zam­bezi Ele­phant Trails is in­formed at the time of book­ing.

All cli­ents trav­el­ing with Zam­bezi Ele­phant Trails are covered by M.A.R.S. in the un­likely event of an emer­gency.

Please bear in mind that guests will be re­spons­ible for car­ry­ing their per­sonal ef­fects while on the ride. It is there­fore ad­vis­able that be­long­ings are kept to a reas­on­able limit.
