  • March 31, 2019 | Rhulani Safari Lodge

Look behind the scenes of Rhulani Safari Lodge.

What should be considered when you meet an elephant on the street and you do not want to have an unpleasant encounter? This is a situation that which is very common on our safaris. Just look how easy it is.

Today we have an elephant bull in front of us, which is not in musth, and we are together with our experienced ranger Alasdair, who is used to such situations. So, no problem at all, and we fully enjoy this unique moment.

But it is also helpful to know that you must always leave enough space for the elephant, so it can pass easily, and that you do nothing to attract or even provoke this big animal. Then nothing will happen to you.
