A Day in a Life of Selinda’s Elephants

You can’t really peer into the eyes of an elephant… they’re too small!!

The real beauty to elephants are their social structures, their mannerisms, behaviours, natural beauty and sheer strength. Watching them gives us such an overwhelming calm to our souls. It’s the breath we humans often need to take, to be allowed the privilege to be in the company of one of Africa’s most loving animals.

Captured In Africa certainly don’t think that way. Africa and her wildlife is worth so much more than a simple photograph. Africa and it’s wildlife should be a photograph embedded in your memory to cherish forever. Allow that warmth to fill you, the experience of a safari to overcome you and the animals you see to be a part of your life’s journey from the time you book your safari and for the rest of your life.

We think they’re worth protecting.

Captured In Africa spent some amazing time in Botswana this year, travelling to the “out of this world” Selinda Reserve and the equally impressive Zarafa Camp.

This is where Dereck and Beverly Joubert, co-founders of Great Plains Conservation, lay their weary heads many long years ago, exhausted from filming. The tranquillity they found as they slept under the tree stayed with them, and a decade and a half later came Zarafa.

“Selinda is true wilderness at it’s very best…with over 165 000 hectares as your playground & not infested with many vehicles, one can only begin to dream about the space… and peace!”

Drew Abrahamson, Captured In Africa
