Everything you need to know about seeing African elephants on safari
The ground rumbles as you sit tentatively, cameras poised. You hear them before you see them, an almighty crunch as the lead female breaks through the foliage and onto the wide savannah plains, shortly followed by the rest of the herd. The first time you see an African elephant in the wild is a moment to behold; overwhelming in size and beauty, they move almost gracefully across the plains.
We can put you in the right place at the right time for lunch with rescued elephants in Botswana, witnessing shy forest elephants in the Congo, or even to see the rare desert adapted elephants of Namibia.
On a safari in Africa, most assume that you’ll just see an elephant anyway without giving it much thought, but they really are one of the most impressive animals to see in the wild.
