What You Can Expect

Best Elephant Ride in Victoria Falls National Park with Transport from Livingstone

Ride an elephant through the African bush!

Start your experience with a pickup from your Livingstone hotel, and relax on the journey to The Elephant Camp, roughly 10 miles (16km) away. Located on a private reserve near the River Masuwe, the camp boasts incredible views of the crashing waters of Victoria Falls as well as the gorges that separate Zimbabwe from Zambia.

Hop out of your air-conditioned minibus and head inside the camp to enjoy a hearty English breakfast (morning tour only), and meet your guide for a safety briefing before your elephant ride starts.

Then, mount your trusty steed behind your elephant handler, and set off into the breathtaking wilderness that is Victoria Falls National Park. Roam through open parkland and sheltered rainforest canopies near the Zambezi River while looking out for the incredible wildlife that abounds. Waterbucks and sable antelopes roam freely around the plains and the birdlife includes species such as hornbills, marabou storks and Cape cormorants.

After exploring the park for 1.5 hours by elephant, return to camp and meet your driver for the journey back to Livingstone. If you have booked the afternoon tour, enjoy snacks and a drink before departing by minibus. Your experience then finishes with a drop-off at your Livingstone hotel.

This tour was amazing!

4 star rating: Recommended July 2015

Despite initial reservations about the ethics behind this and how well the elephants are treated I was relieved to find the animals well cared for and apparently happy. One thing to note though although the morning trip is advertised as coming with breakfast all we were served with was coffee. Enjoyed the tour very much.
