Meet the rescued elephants at Buffelsdrift Game Lodge and experience their gentle nature while feeding them.


None of these elephants have been taken from the wild for captivity. The three elephants were orphaned when the adults were poached. The elephants come from circumstances that if Buffelsdrift did not intervene they would not be alive today. Buffelsdrift did not choose this life for them but rather chose to give them the best possible life within their means with the best possible love and care. All of the elephant excursions have a most informative educational approach.

They are fortunate that the elephants ended up here at Buffelsdrift Game Lodge as they are truly gentle giants and have great personalities. Elephants are very affectionate and caring animals.
