Kids Elephant Adventure | Kruger Family Elephant Encounter
Family Holiday Package Experience
Enjoy a family holiday with our self-drive Kids Elephant Adventure Package. Learn about Africa's gentle giants and ride an Elephant through the bush. Kids will be mesmerized by the interaction with these magnificent animals. Exchange trunk greetings and learn about their behaviour from the guides before setting out through the bush on the Elephant's back.
Challenge your family's creativity while on a choice of adventure activities, either the Tree Top Trail, the Climbing Wall, or experience the rush of speed while whizzing through the air on a Zip Line. All of these activities are fun for the whole family.
Spend a full day on a self-drive game drive, discovering the varied wildlife in Kruger National Park. Spot many antelope such as Giraffe and Zebra, or see Elephant in the wild. Stop off and have a leisurely picnic at one of the Rest Camps, before continuing your adventures.

Savour a delicious meal in the restaurant before falling asleep to the sounds of the African night. (Dinner included)
Day 2: Country Estate in HazyviewView Lodge
Alternatively, if your family has a need for speed, you can try the zip line experience. How about attempting the climbing wall? Anyone can attempt this, as strategy rather than strength is the all important factor in getting to the top.
Head back to the hotel and have lunch before relaxing. Perhaps cool off in the swimming pool. In the late afternoon drive to an Elephant interaction.
