Botswana Stanley's Camp 1
 


Botswana Stanley

LIVING WITH ElephantS interaction

Thousands of elephants migrate through the area and here, as at the nearby Sanctuary Baines' Camp, you can have an astonishing experience walking with elephants in the bush. Three orphaned elephants have been brought up in the area by their guardians Doug and Sandi Groves. Every morning the elephants go for a walk around their home range, foraging for food and checking that all is well.  A few people each day are able to accompany them on their walk through the bush and see the wilds of Africa through the eyes of an elephant - a truly uplifting experience that makes a lasting impression on all who share their time with the elephants. This activity includes a leisurely paced walk with a trio of semi-habituated elephants, followed by a picnic lunch in their company.
