Follow in the footsteps of your ranger

Why not take to foot and follow in the footsteps of your ranger and a senior elephant carer through the reserve to track the Jabulani herd? The herd roams at its own leisurely pace through the big five reserve for most of the day and it’s exciting to observe the elephants in their natural habitat as they browse and forage.

Under the guidance of the Jabulani team, you’ll learn how to track the herd and once you’ve located them The afternoon is spent observing these fascinating animals and learning more about their individual stories, personalities and how to identify them.

This experience is only available when there is not a new orphan or young elephant in the herd, as elephants are highly protective and cautious when there is a calf to care for and keep safe. The herd currently walk with an albino calf, Khanyisa who is being integrated into their blended family, making these tracking excursions currently unavailable. The safety and wellbeing of the elephants and our guests is of the utmost importance to us.
