We offers a unique and authentic experience that focuses on learning about and observing the special bond between elephants and their mahouts. Unlike other elephant sanctuaries, we do not allow bathing or feeding the elephants to ensure their safety and well-being. Instead, you will have the opportunity to watch the mahouts as they interact with the elephants, learning about their communication and trust-building techniques, and see how they care for and feed the elephants. During the tour, you will have the opportunity to visit local markets to purchase food for the elephants and even make herbal vitamin snack balls for them. You'll also learn about the communication and trust-building techniques used by the mahouts, and see firsthand how they care for and feed the elephants. The highlight of the tour is undoubtedly the close-up interaction with the elephants, where you can take photos and observe them in their natural environment.
