Zambezi Elephant Back Safari Victoria Falls
Victoria Falls elephant back safaris offers an opportunity to ride and observe these giants in their natural environment.
The “ride” itself is a gentle sway as you move through the African bush observing the surrounding wildlife from your elevated perch and come eye to eye with a giraffe (well, almost).
Interact with the herd at the end and offer pellets as a thankyou.
