A herd of elephants in Chobe National Park, Botswana

Elephants

Elephants are very intelligent, sociable animals who live in close knit family groups, with an older matriarch and several generations of relatives. The African elephant is the largest living land mammal and the largest concentration of elephants can be spotted on safari in Kenya, Tanzania, Botswana and South Africa. The flood plains and acacia woodlands of Chobe National Park are world renowned for their large herds of elephant. We offer a wide range of safari's in African, where you can spot these gentle giants. You can even swim with elephants in Gweru, Zimbabwe!(this is an optional activity)

The Asian elephant has smaller ears than its larger African counterpart. On safari in India, Nepal and Sri Lanka, you can spot wild Asian elephants, although a large proportion are now domesticated and used for ceremonial purposes and forestry. Ride an elephant up to the Amber Fort in Jaipur, search for tiger on elephant back in Nepal or visit the Pinnewela Elephant Orphanage in Sri Lanka which cares for abandoned baby elephants, here you can watch them being fed and washed at the river.

If you're keen to encounter elephants, we have a wide range of tours to suit. Below is a selection of some of our best.
