This exclusive ‘BEHIND THE SCENES’ presents guests the opportunity to join our resident ecologist, researchers and vet teams within an intimate setting of only 6 guests, for a darting and collaring experience. The collaring process allows for continual monitoring and allows us to safeguard the species from the ever-increasing risk of poaching. It allows us to gain valuable insight into their movements and behaviour to allow for better integration into this unique environment.
ON THE DAY
After an early breakfast, you will depart with your guide to meet the vet and reserve teams. A helicopter will be used to dart the elephant and a combination of helicopter and vehicle will be used for darting the rhino. Once sedated the vet will initiate procedures. Dependent on sedation success an interaction with the sedated animal may be presented for educational purposes for the guests. Please be aware that these are wild animals and due to their unpredictable nature it may be necessary to complete the procedure over 2 days.
This ‘BEHIND THE SCENES’ experience allows a chance to meet the survivor and hear his story told first- hand by his rescuers.
