Together with this ecologically friendly method of game viewing, a strong emphasis is placed on an elephant experience rather than just an elephant ride and guests are encouraged to interact with these majestic and intelligent African mammals, with morning and afternoon elephant-back safaris available.
The training techniques used by Zambezi Elephant Trails are based on the positive reinforcement method as opposed to the controversial 'discipline and submission' technique commonly associated with Asian Elephants.
Get up close and personal with the six adult African elephants, Madinda, Bop, Marula, Liwa, Danny, and Mashumbi each offer two guests an unparalleled viewpoint of the mighty Zambezi River and surrounding bush area of Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park. Chavaruka born to Mashumbi in 2004 will carry just one guest. Safari Par Excellence also proud to have an addition of 2 calves, Nandi, born to Liwa and Bop on the 13th April 2007 and Sekuti, a young orphan the herd brought home from the bush at the end of January 2010. Both calves accompany on the walk with clients, frolicking along with the herd.
