LIVING WITH elephants interaction
An extraordinary treat available at Sanctuary Baines' Camp is
the opportunity to go walking in the bush with three
semi-habituated elephants. Jabu, Thembi and Morula are elephants
that were orphaned nearby and adopted by Doug and Sandi Groves. The
elephants 'take' guests on long walks, foraging in the area in
absolute safety. They show travellers how they look for food, strip
leaves from branches with their long trunks and take showers in the
lagoons of the delta. What better guide to the African bush than a
fully-grown African elephant? Even Sanctuary's famously brilliant
guides bow to these elephants' innate knowledge and bush-sense.
This activity includes a leisurely paced walk with a trio of
semi-habituated elephants, observing and interacting with them, and
a picnic lunch in their company.
