Elephant Darting Experience
Ranger Buck Safaris arranges exclusive access to elephants during the darting process and the subsequent research work undertaken by the authorities.
Guests will be transported to the scene either by overland game viewer vehicle or by helicopter depending on where the elephant has been located in the wild. On arrival at the scene you will witness the dating of the elephant from the helicopter and the subsequent efforts to immobilize the animal. Once it is safe you will be guided by our professional crew and wildlife vet to assist ‘Hand-on’ with the vital tasks that are crucial to the success of the conservation experience.
