Important Information

Welcome to White Elephant Safaris.
Here's what to expect:
White Elephant is the only destination in South Africa to offer Kariba-like, water-based safari activities as well as the traditional land-based activities. This sets us apart from other safari destinations. We are passionate about conservation and offer a superb Black Rhino tracking experience (with an excellent chance of viewing Black Rhino on foot), as well as fascinating Elephant research activities. We also offer conventional activities such as game drives, educational bush walks and incredible boat cruises on Lake Jozini. These varied activities as well as the chance of catching tiger fish and superb bird watching possibilities, make us a truly unique South African Safari experience.
