The Wild Horizons Elephant Sanctuary and Orphanage has been a safe haven for a myriad orphaned and injured elephants since its inception in 1992. Whilst hand-rearing the orphans, we have come to understand that the best way to appreciate these magnificent creatures is to observe them living wild and free. At the Elephant Encounter guests have the opportunity to unobtrusively interact with some of the biggest personalities in Africa, in a pristine environment of raw and natural beauty. An open-plan thatched boma offers an uninterrupted view of the beautiful Masuwe River, and against this breathtaking backdrop guests are given an insightful presentation on the sanctuary and the individual elephants, their lifestyle and their future release plans. The sanctuary was founded on the principle of conservation, and one of the most effective ways to evoke a sense of environmental responsibility is to show what stands to be lost. Guests have the opportunity to talk to guides who have journeyed, physically and metaphorically, incredible distances with these elephant, and learn more about the complexities of the individuals and the herd structure. Guests venture out into the bush to spend time with the herd, where unquestionably the up-close-and-personal encounter with these magnificent mammals will be imprinted on everyone’s minds long after they have returned home. Guests witness too, the special relationship staff share with the elephants, and become a part of it themselves. Guests naturally have the opportunity to take photographs with the elephants, while marveling at their size and watching them browse and interact with one another. After the encounter with these amazing creatures a full English breakfast is offered. Thereafter guests are transferred back to their hotel.
