Elephant Interaction – Bayete Zulu

Guests seeking a deeper meaning to their visit may wish to have close contact and interaction with wildlife. Although little can match the thrill of seeing wild elephants in Hluhluwe Umfolozi Game Reserve, guests are also afforded an opportunity of close contact with 2 mature elephants that were orphaned and hand reared but are now free to range in a private game reserve that is over 2 500 hectares.

These two elephants come up to visit the viewing area each morning, for a welcome snack of game pellets. Here you will be able to interact with them in well-controlled situations and also enjoy suburb interpretation of the elephant species, which is enlightening and clearly shows the care and concern that is afforded to these two magnificent animals.
