Elephant-Back Riding

Elephant-Back Safaris. Fancy the idea of meandering through the bush along the shores of the Zambezi courtesy of your own ellie? Very lucky clients might even have the opportunity to ride through the river! Not only does this operation keep clients happy enough to forget their sore thighs the next day, it also has the elephants happy enough to keep having babies!

Safari Par Excellence. Trips with Safari Par Excellence cost US$185 for a ride, plus US$10 for park fees. Livingstone, Southern. 213/32–0606; www.safpar.net.
