What an incredible encounter. The elephants are so well cared for and their interactions with humans in such a non aggressive way is such a big indication of this . The guides are friendly and knowledgeable , and have a great relationship with the elephants. I in no way felt threatened or scared by the elephants as I felt I was fully briefed about the elephants and their behaviours beforehand . The elephant walk is definitely a bucket list type experience , that will remain with me for the rest of my life . Thank you for looking after these beautiful creatures and giving them a better life .
Oh wow, what an amazing experience. We took our older son, awesome teaching experience for kids. Touching the elephants is amazing, they are beautiful. I also loved the experience of feeding them. The guides are excellent, and very helpful. Also lots of Zebras and ducks.
