Observe elephants in the wild with Andante - #WorldElephantDay10th August 2018
Today, August 12th, is World Elephant Day. There is nothing more awe-inspiring than getting to observe these majestic animals in their natural habitat, but it is so important to do so responsibly.
If you'd like to experience this yourself – in the company of experts who will ensure your encounter is safe not only for you as a guest, but for the elephants too – why not book a place on our 2019 South Africa & Tanzania tour?
During this 16-day adventure, we'll pay a visit to Kruger National Park, where you'll be treated to an open-vehicle game drive. This area has an incredibly diverse ecosystem and here you'll be able to spot elephants – along with antelopes and hippos – in the environment they call home. Experts will be on hand to ensure you get the most out of your experience, and that it is completely respectful of the animals at all times.
It is so important to protect our world's wildlife, especially in an era where climate change and commercialism is impacting their natural habitats. To find out how you can help, click here.
Alice Beavon, one of Andante Travels' Graphic Designers, recently travelled to South Africa and was lucky enough to experience a game drive during her trip. She has shared a selection of her personal photographs with us, which you can see below, and has revealed that nothing can really describe witnessing elephants in the wild:
"Seeing wild elephants in their own natural environment was the most amazing experience, and one that I will never forget – it actually brought a tear to my eye! It is something that should be on everyone's bucket list."
