    AMAZING EXPERIENCE WITH MUDASSIR
    We had the BEST time with Mudassir, we came here with the hope to see elephants but we had a whole day full of emotions instead! The elephants are incredibly friendly and you get to pet, feed, paint, ride and wash them! Definitely reccomend to come here, they treat animals like royalties!

    Best day of the vacation
    We booked this Elephant experience Just One hour before. They were so kind and gentle from the booking ( in which they gave all information and very clear). Once we arrived all the staff was accomodating and the Elephant were very relaxed. It was clear that they were Happy and treated in a proper way. We spent 2 hours petting and feeding and washing Elephants while the guide explained everything about the Animals. After we walked a Path with the Elephant nearby their Place. They Also gave US water bexcause It was so hot. The most important thing Is that you can pay with credit cards. Furthermore in the price tickets was included also pick up from the point we were and After the visit they took us to the hotel Simply the best experience of our entire vacation

    Memorable Experience
    Absolutely loved the experience! Definitely a once in a lifetime event and very memorable. I went as a solo female traveler and felt safe the entire time and Mudassir took extremely good care of me. Transportation was arranged and it was a very well priced. I especially loved the opportunity to paint the elephant Shanti for a wedding that same evening. Mudassir was very informative about the elephants and I learned a lot. They took good care of the elephants and I enjoyed being able to go for an elephant ride as well as feed the elephant. Overall, I highly recommend the experience!

    Gentle Giants
    If you want to ride elephants, this is not the place for you. If you want to interact respectfully with these gentle giants, I cannot recommend this place highly enough. We did ride elephants. But I suggest you walk along with them instead, which is an option. We were tough a little about how to behave around them and what they like and don’t like, then we got a fair amount of time just to be with them and interact. My feeling was that they enjoyed this encounter almost as much as I did. The guides were friendly and spoke good English, and the atmosphere was friendly and relaxed.

    Amazing with family! Must try!
    Excellent experience with family and children or couples. Elephants are well treated and they seem happy. My family rode Rangoli Elephant and she was very sweet. We were able to touch, feed and colour on them.
