An elephant experience like no other

An elephant experience like no other

Get up close and personal with Rambo and Rachel at Elephant Connections in Northern Zululand.


When their herd was culled, Rambo and Rachel were given a second chance at life by Elephant Connections.

Based north of Hluhluwe-iMfolozi Park and just off the N2 alongside Bayete Zulu Lodges in Mkuze, Elephant Connections offers visitors the chance to interact with their pair of gentle giants - all while learning about these majestic animals and their plight.

Elephant Connections' website explains: 'One of our passionate and knowledgeable rangers will talk you through Rambo and Rachel’s history and provide you with interesting facts about elephants. You will be given opportunity to feed Rambo and Rachel, as well as touch Rambos ears, behind his tusks, between his legs, and even get to feel his tongue!

'This experience, described as “Life Changing”, is sure to delight visitors. When the elephants are not greeting visitors, they are roaming freely within the Manyoni Game Reserve with their keepers by their side.'

Interactions take place daily at 11am. For bookings and further information, contact Elephant Connections on +27 (0)74 100 5221 or [email protected].
