As a result of Elena and Gary’s stay at the Mashatu Main Camp within the Mashatu Reserve in Botswana last year we published a dedicated feature about the luxury lodge. While they were there they had a chance to meet Jeanetta Selier, a Botswana elephant expert, and experience one of her morning Ivory Drives.
Jeanetta shared insights about her nine years dedicated to studying the elephant population of the Tuli Block in Botswana during an audio interview with Elena. In the hour long recording, Jeanetta talks about the 1,400 elephants who call that area of Africa home and her study and findings in the many years she has spent in the region. She also discussed opportunities for visitors to see the elephants during lodge game drives, Ivory Drives and even observe an elephant collaring, a rare event.
