Why Book This Day Tour

  • Get up close to African Elephant and learn more about these amazing animals.
  • Enjoy an afternoon game drive through the Hluhluwe Imfolozi Game Reserve.
  • An expert guide with you all day.

It’s not everyday you get to meet two great big African elephants and even get to feed them a few treats! Bayete Zulu is situated in a Big 5 reserve and is home to two rescued elephants, Rambo and Rachel, who of their own free will, make their way up to the Boma for some mid-morning treats where they will graciously allow humans to take photo’s and ooh and ahh over them.

This is truly a unique experience which we follow up with a game drive through the big 5, Hluhluwe Imfolozi Game Reserve where rhino, hippo and other big game can be spotted as well as lion, cheetah and leopard!

Reviews of this tour

I though the elephant experience would be similar to what we had in aisa, so I was apprehensive to go but it was one of the best experiences and the elephants were amazing. So glad shelldon could help us at last minute

Jenifer – TripAdvisor Review

Hi Shelldon. I wanted to take the time to thank you personally for all the effort you made in arranging and then being our guide for our rather large family group. The girls absolutely loved the elephants and are starting to plan another trip back to South Africa. Thank you again.
