All about the trip
The elephants on this tour live in a retirement home and spend their days being fed, photographed, and bathed by tourists, not ridden by them.
The day begins with a visit to an innovative, eco-friendly initiative that takes an elephant by-product and turns it into a paper. From there, it's onto the bikes for a ride through orchards, rice fields, and even some forest, on the way to the elephant sanctuary.
Once at the elephant sanctuary we will change into a uniform before meeting the elephants and learning about their stories. Soon it will be time to get muddy with the elephants as you apply a mud treatment to their skin and then join them in a bath and brush them clean as they wade and play in the water.
The ride is a gentle, flat 32 km on quiet sealed country roads, and on some smooth dirt lanes. This trip is fully supported and you will have a constant supply of cold drinks and fresh fruits. Your guide is an expert of the area and terrain, and you always know, what is coming up in terms of a distance.
