Living with elephants is an innovative programme hosted exclusively in Botswana by the Sanctuary Retreats chain since 1999. Although, the programme is only available to Sanctuary Baine’s and Stanley’s Camps. It allows you to play and interact with these gentle giants as well as take part in educational games. This isn’t restricted to adults only, feel free to bring the whole family along.

The elephants, Jabu, Thembi and Morula were orphaned elephants rescued from culling by Doug and Sandi. They knew they were making a lifelong commitment when adopting these beautiful creatures and giving them an environment safe from danger.

The Living with Elephants programme works hard to solidify the relationships and understanding of human and animal interactions. Giving you a once in a lifetime opportunity to dine and play with the complex African Elephant.

Living with Elephants

Living with Elephants is a 2 day programme where you can observe and interact directly with the orphaned elephants. 10 children along with 2 adult chaperones are able to participate in educational and active games with the animals as well as learn about their behaviour, their history and their complex relationship with humans.

There’s a lot more to the programme than just observing and learning; there’s plenty of activities to do with the elephants such as taking long strolls together and dining. Elephants make excellent company and will give you a dinner party you will never forget.
