Fantastic day with very happy elephants. No logging, circus, trekking, football or painting for them, they seem so relaxed. Great day feeding them, then it was down for a wash in the river. They are so well looked after and can be very cheeky !

Elephant Nature Park is one of the few organisations that treats their elephants with kindness and freedom. No hooks, no riding, no forced tricks - Just a free life to retire and recover.

We stayed at the Bridge Residence Hotel and it was good. We also took a taxi from the hotel to the bus station in the morning.
