Life With Elephants Experience

Return Helicopter Transfers & Village Experience

Elephants are majestic, intelligent creatures that require large amounts of resources to survive, which can bring them into conflict with subsistence farmers living along the edge of the Okavango Delta.

The Life with Elephants Tour is an independent community tour group that was established with assistance from the Ecoexist Project in an effort to bring more benefits back to people who live with elephants on the edge of the Okavango Delta. You will begin the tour with the group by discussing with the elders the day to day challenges of living amongst elephants, including safety and procedures to protect village crops. After traditional singing and dancing, guests will then be taken on a walk to experience all aspects of village life, including visiting the local school, housing, transportation by donkey drawn cart, access to water, local arts and crafts, and a visit with the local blacksmith. This experience is a unique opportunity to fully immerse yourself in traditional life for a local community that exists in a delicate balance with wildlife, as well as increasing the value of elephants for the village and encouraging their conservation.

The transfer from camp to Eretsha Village is iconic in itself, as you land at the project you will experience how close the elephant trails are to farmlands. At low altitude your transfer offers sweeping views of the seasonal floodplains that merge into the permanent lagoons of the panhandle and the formation of the delta, giving you the opportunity to view a variety of wildlife dependent on these different habitats. The return transfer offers more wildlife sightings before landing back at camp.

Includes: Return helicopter transfers; 3 hour experience at Eretsha Village; Private Guide.
