Full description

Start your day with a pickup from your accommodation in a luxury, air-conditioned van. From there, take a scenic drive through beautiful scenery to the sanctuary located in the jungle. Meet your guide and learn a little more about the elephants before gathering up some bananas and cane sugar.

Follow your guide through the forest and carry food to feed where the elephants are resting up in the hills, and discover the free-roaming elephants in a safe, sustainable and ethical environment. Your guide will tell you about each elephant's individual stories. Walk with the elephants down from the hill. Touch, feed, photograph, and interact with the elephants at your leisure while you learn about their lifestyle and behaviors. Go with the elephants to a nearby natural lake and join them in the water for a refreshing bath. Take a swim and help bathe and brush the elephants while they wade through and play in the water. Once the elephants are clean, you can take some final photos with them, and then it will be time to part ways with your new friend and change into some dry clothes. Finally, enjoy a delicious set menu lunch and a dish from the Thai Cooking Class together with seasonal fresh fruits before heading back to your hotel.

Absolut empfehlenswert, lieber etwas mehr Geld ausgeben um so Orte zu unterstützen als andere Orte wo die Elefanten nicht artgerecht gehalten werden!! Und noch dazu soooooo freundliche Besitzer und Guide Und frühstückt nicht oder nicht so viel weil ihr sonst den lunch nicht packt
