  • A beautiful ride, them elephants are superentrenados and accustomed to walk to it people with what the ride is makes fun, them guides know remove very good photos (to us more than 100) and also is down of them elephants and them guide with it voice, give them of eat bananas and see as is them carry to the mouth with the Horn is a pleasure. To the walk in elephant it is a ride in raft by the river. All excellent.
