You will be picked up at the hotel, get a companion, extensive lunch and unlimited water in small groups. Lots of contact with the elephant where you can take care of that day together with the companion. Prepare the food, banana feeding and washing the elephant in the river as well as on the laundry. Also you can still make paper from elephant poo.
Our guide’s name was “T” and he was wonderful. It was great to see the elephants so well cared for, I might even say spoiled! Better yet was that they took you through the entire process of caring for the animals from making their food, feeding them, and even bathing them. Usually I wouldn’t be very interested in getting my hands too dirty but it wasn’t disgusting and it was plenty entertaining. They even provide you with these elephant keeper outfits which add some excitement to the photos you’re inevitably going to take. I highly recommend!
Great to spend time in a place where the elephants are cared for and not beaten into submission. Some may have been when younger and at work in other places . Here was a place to live out their retirement in peace.
