  • We spent a beautiful day in VIP with our guide and his companions. 3 elephants just for us, very well treated, without chains or rings on the legs. In the program, a morning to make knowledge with the elephants, how to address them, mount (raw, without pod) and a ride up the River (AR) to practice what you have learned in the morning. Swimming was great, we are bathed with elephants, cleaned them and just play with them. Not displeasing to us the landscape is beautiful, very nature, we have been received, and we ate well! We recommend! :)

  • In a van to woody. Beautiful tour through beautiful surroundings. Closer and closer, the forests around you. At woody arrived get your explanation, clothing, and you start with the elephants. You may feed them. Then a short ride on the elephant. Very spectacular! Super. And in a good way! Then wash it and cuddle in the river. Top day!
