Elephant Nature Drive
At Camp Kipwe hosts offer our guests the option of going on an Elephant Nature
Drive, which can last from 3 – 6 hours. The drive incorporates exploring the
surrounding terrain in search of these magnificent beasts.
There are only two groups of desert dwelling Elephants in the world, one in Mali and the other in Namibia! These elephants have adapted to their dry and often sandy conditions by having smaller body mass and larger feet in comparison to other elephants.
Eighty years ago, more than 3000 elephants seasonally lived in Namibia’s Kunene Region, mostly in the ephemeral rivers. Hunters and poachers killed most of them by the early 1980’s. Over the past 20 years, MET, NGOs and Community Game Guards have protected them, so approximately 600 elephants roam the region today.
Remember that elephants have mediocre eyesight, good hearing and excellent smell. And they can move FAST! They can accelerate from 0 – 40km/h in less than a second! Please observe the following guidelines to ensure a safe and enjoyable experience:
Please remain seated in the vehicle. Do not make sudden movements.
Elephants may charge if agitated. Often they warn you by sharply shaking their head at you. Breeding bulls in “musth” are especially unpredictable and aggressive. Sometimes a loud sharp sound may deter them.
Please remain silent when viewing the elephants.
Duration: 4 – 6 hours
