Located just 10 km from Livingstone, Zambezi Elephant Trails has established Zambia’s first “Elephant Camp” – offering a once in a lifetime insight into these gentle giants. 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. 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.
Our five African Elephants Mashumbi, Danny, Liwa, Madinda and Marula each offer two guests an unparalleled viewpoint of the mighty Zambezi River and surrounding bush area of Mosi Oa Tunya National Park. Nandi born to Liwa in 2004 and Sekuti the orphan now seven, will carry just one guest each. Our two youngsters Muyuni and Nyami accompany on the walk frolicking along with the herd.
