About this trip

Explore the intricate world of Elephants on this Elephant Encounter Safari experience in the Okavango Delta and Chobe, two areas recognised for their wildlife and wilderness and in particular, their Elephant populations. On this safari you will encounter the world's largest Elephant herds and spend intimate moments with semi-habituated Elephants. Not only will you see the great herds but there is also the opportunity to walk in the bush alongside some of these gentle creatures, learning first-hand how they select food and how they react to the environment around them. This is the only African safari for you if Elephants are a special interest.

Day 1

4 Days Elephant Back Safaris

Arriving in Maun from Johannesburg you will board a light aircraft for your flight into the Okavango Delta, where you will spend 2 nights of your unique Elephant Encounter Safari in Botswana. The first afternoon will be spent on a game drive getting to know the area before stopping for sundowners in the African bush.

Day 2

Full Day at Okavango

Today you will have the opportunity to spend time in the bush on foot with 3 semi-habituated Elephants, walking alongside them and interacting as never before. There will be guides to show you the ropes and give you a rundown on Elephant etiquette. This unique activity allows you to satisfy your curiosity about the gentle giants of Africa.

There will be time for relaxation before the afternoon activity of your choice. Depending on the season you may choose a dugout canoe ride, a motorboat excursion, or another game drive before heading back to the game lodge for cocktails and dinner. Sleep may come slowly as the memories of the incredible interaction pass through your mind.

Day 3


Okavango - Chobe

Today you head north in a light aircraft over the endless wilderness of Northern Botswana before reaching the Chobe River. Here you will spend the next 2 nights in a bush lodge set high above the floodplains. Activities revolve around the river with game drives and boat cruises providing a wildlife experience to savor.

Day 4

Full day at Chobe

The Chobe floodplains are alive with wildlife coming down to drink - this is especially so during the dry season when the water in the interior has dried up. Game drives and boat cruises will bring you up close and personal to the great herds. There may even be the opportunity of watching Elephants cross the river into Namibia. You may wish to spend the afternoon in the privacy of your room or treat yourself to the wellness spa, renowned as the best in Botswana. A swimming pool provides relief from the midday heat or you may simply relax in the en-suite garden of your room. This is truly an exceptional experience, with incredible wildlife sightings and the best service on offer.

Day 5


There will be time for one more activity before your transfer to the airport and your flight back to Johannesburg.
