Fit An Elephant With A Radio Collar In South Africa

Join the rangers at the Phinda Private Game Reserve as they monitor and track the elephant herds in the reserve. A veterinary team will take to the skies in a helicopter to search for one of the herds, while you follow in a 4WD vehicle. Once the elephant is located and anaesthetised you will be able to help change the elephant’s collar, which help protects the pachyderm from poachers.
