  • a few days ago we were with these wonderful animals. We collected at the agreed time, they were very specific. We hire half day excursion, which I went flying. After an hour's drive along a road curves we arrived at the camp. Arriving you get clothes and you'll know the elephants. You feed them sugar cane and fruit. After that you ride in the and going to the river. When the river is the most fun, is that the elephant enjoys a lot. Back to the camp and give you a small lunch noodless (is like a small cooking class, since bundles your self, throwing him whatever you want). And then back to the hotel. The animal is seen well care, there is only a mahout who speaks English, the other nothing. A site for repeat, above all for animals

  • And the tour would recommended by a friend. We were picked up on time and got clothes. The guides were all very nice but we are unclear whether the elephants were well kept. An elephant was hit by a guide and has yelped because he did not directly put. In addition, the elephants were very performing. In the whole Oke! Better than the elephant trekking in the South but are certainly way more equitable
