Elephant Activity

Overview: Elephant Activity

STOP PRESS It is with a very sad heart that Expert Africa are no longer able to offer the elephant activity at Stanley’s or Baines’ Camp.

At the end of August 2020, on one of his daily outings in the bush with elephants, Jabu and Morula, to forage, mudbathe etc., carer Doug Groves passed away. At some point in their outing, an encounter with a wild elephant resulted in Doug’s tragic death. Our sympathy and support go out to his partner Sandi in these difficult times.

Since then, Sandi has been formulating a plan to safeguard the long-term well-being of Jabu and Morula. However, The Living with Elephants Foundation will sadly no longer be able to offer the opportunity of joining Jabu and Morula during their walks.

As an alternative, please do take a look at Abu Camp which offers a wonderful opportunity to learn more about the individual members of the Abu herd of elephants on 4 x 4 game drives.

Please note: Expert Africa only books excursions as a part of a full, Expert Africa itinerary.

Helicopter Flight - Botswana

Helicopter Flight - Botswana

Various: from 30 minutes to half a day.

Low-flying, agile and offering superb views, helicopters are an ideal way to move around the Okavango Delta.You can use them instead of fixed-wing inter-lodge transfers or as an addition to other wildlife watching activities, and of course, helicopters can hover to allow that perfect pic, whereas fixed-wings can’t.

Ballooning in the Okavango Delta

Ballooning in the Okavango Delta

Half day - mornings only

Airborne over the Okavango Delta is always magical - not only for its beauty, but also for insights it gives you into the patterns of channels, lagoons and floodplains. Floating silently at dawn, watching the early sun light up the misty palms islands and spotting the animals as they wake up is particularly enchanting.
