They may be the largest animals on land, but elephants are able to easily creep into our hearts no matter how big they may be!
On the 12th of August 2018, World Elephant Day was celebrated across the world. People shared their reasons for why this incredibly precious animals is so important to them as well as highlighted the need to protect the elephant species as well.
We have had so many special moments that have been shared with guests and the elephants in the areas we call home. So much so, that this World Elephant Day we have decided to share our favourite videos that were taken by our guests or guides whilst out in the bush.
Feasting With Elephants
Be one with the herd Our new 360° Virtual Reality videos take you closer than ever before.
Is there a better way to spend your Sunday than hanging out with a herd of elephant in Ruaha? Filmed close to Jabali Ridge.
The Bravest Little Ellie
A young calf has a go at scaring off our safari vehicle but it seems as though he may have taken on more than he can handle! This was taken at Roho ya Selous.
A Quick Visit To Oliver’s
Maybe he took a wrong turn? Or maybe he just wanted to see what we were having for sundowners – who knows! It was great having this little guy pop in and say “Hi!” at Oliver’s Camp.

At the Mara Bush Houses, you’ll be spoilt with sightings such as this one – a herd of elephant enjoying their time at the waterhole right outside camp!
Is There Room For One More?
