What a way to watch orphaned elephants being given some time to bathe in a river. The hotel staff are wonderfully polite and well mannered.

Had breakfast in this restaurant watching Elephants take bath in River. People were selling Banana's (Rupees 200) to feed the Elephants. Kids enjoyed watching elephants taking a dip in water and baby elephants playing with each other. Food was average.
