  • It is exciting to see how they give the bottle to two dozens of elephant calves. They are leaving them out slowly and go like little children running to their bottle. Don't let approaching people for which not is habituen already at 5 years release them in the jungle. A wonder for all ages.

  • Not hands on as these orphans will be released into the wild. Nice experience and cheap entry. Quite busy at feeding times on viewing platform. Worth a visit!  more »
