We interacted with the animals the whole time, feeding, touching, painting and washing them, also ride... but for me feed the animal, touch it and hug the elephant's trunk... uf, it was simply incredible!

This was a brilliant experience from the moment we booked until the moment we left. We had a wonderful time with our elephant, Preeya. We started off by feeding her and getting up close and feeling less afraid. Then the paint was brought out and we started to get artistic on her side, we definitely aren't artists but is was...

Perfect elephant experience. We fed, painted, and bonded with the elephants before climbing on for a ride! The workers are knowledgeable, kind, and want to make sure you have a good time. One of my best experiences in India so far.

Great hands on experience. Bonded with, fed, painted and rode our elephant in a beautiful setting for Rs 2500 per person which also included hotel pickup and drop off. Go to their website for the contact number and ring them so you don't pay commission to a third party.

They are very knowledgable about the elephants and seem to treat them very well. We fed them and were able to stroke them and ride them. They are lovely gentle giants and I feel very lucky to have got so close to them. I was wary at first as in Thailand I have seen them treated poorly but they seem... More

We had a great few hours with an Elephant, from feeding, giving her a drink, painting her trunk and then going for a ride on her. We were able to feel really close to the Elephant and they are very well looked after. Well worth the money and would definitely recommend.
