South Africa holidays
This activity takes place between the morning and the afternoon game drives and is scheduled after breakfast. To meet and interact with Kapama's elephants, your ranger will drive you to a designated location in the bush, where the reserve's 16 habituated elephants will be browsing in the wild; the herd ranges in age from young calves to mature adults over 30 years old. After a brief introduction, some members of the herd will be brought forward for you to meet. Always accompanied by their handlers, the elephants are relaxed and there is the opportunity to get extremely close to them. You can feed them, touch them and observe the herd dynamics as the younger elephants play under the watchful eye of the adults. There's plenty of opportunity for photographs during the half-hour interaction time, with handlers providing information on individual elephants and fascinating herd behaviour.
