Ecotourism. Part of the Sanctuary Retreats Group. A strong commitment to conservation and the environment is at the core of Sanctuary Retreats' ethos - evident in the location, design and construction of our properties as well as the sustainable practices used on a daily basis. Sanctuary Retreats and non-profit charity Living With Elephants invite you to explore Africa from an elephant's perspective. Meet and interact with Jabu, Thembi and Morula, a trio of semi-habituated orphaned elephants, while walking in their gigantic and silent footsteps. This is a truly uplifting experience that leaves a lasting impression on all who share their time with the elephants.
Living with Elephants is exclusive to Sanctuary Baines' Camp and Sanctuary Stanley's Camp in the Okavango Delta, Botswana allowing guests to observe and interact with the three elephants on a leisurely walk, before enjoying a picnic lunch in their company. The foundation was launched in 1999 by American couple Doug and Sandi Groves, and the charity is dedicated to creating harmonious relationships between people and elephants.
