All about the Elephant Encounter Victoria Falls – Walk with Giants.

Elephant Encounter Victoria Falls Overview

An open-design thatch Boma gives guests an uninterrupted view of the beautiful Masuwe River, and against this breath-taking back drop, guests will be given an insightful and educational presentation on the Wild Horizons Elephant Sanctuary and Orphanage.

The sanctuary was founded on the principle of conservation, and one of the most effective ways to evoke a sense of environmental responsibility is to show what stands to be lost.

You have an opportunity to interact with guides that have journeyed-physically and metaphorically, incredible distances with these elephant, and learn more about the complexities of the individuals and the herd structures. Learn about the elephant as well as their history and how they came to be in this care facility, as well as the threats facing elephant populations today, in an interesting and informative talk.

Venture out into the bush to spend time with the elephant and the sight of the gentle grey mammals up close and personal will be imprinted on your minds long after you have returned home.

Witness the special relationship the elephant keepers share with the animal sand become apart of it. You will have the opportunity to take photographs with the elephants, marvel at their size and watch them behaving normally; browsing and interacting with one another.

After the encounter with these amazing creatures you can enjoy a selection of refreshments in the cool of the Elephant Wallow.
