  • We must think what is the best for the elephant. They are the wild and love the wildlife and before keep them in the wild, we must make sure that they are safe there as well. And till then, we must care them well.
  • Great opportunity to see elephants. Rent a bike to get there from Sauraha
  • This is an bad thing. They break the will of the animals to make them to working elephants. Its horrible to see
  • Don't forget to bring your kids here. Learn more about elephants and human-elephant relations.
