Rescue, Rehabilitate and Release
Elephant Viewing: 11:45 – 13:00 each day
The Hide offers you the opportunity to see Zambia’s orphaned elephants at close proximity, whilst ensuring minimal human impact upon the elephants by viewing from this specially designed Hide. These orphans are the tragic victims of wildlife crime and conflict and are in the early stages of rehabilitation towards eventual release back into the wild where they belong. Please note to ensure elephant welfare and maximise release success this is a restricted distance viewing opportunity only.
