An excursion filled with adrenaline and adventure! Thank you to the drivers guides and all involved on the river as well. Rafting was really a fun experience and the visit to the monkeys and cleaning and feeding of the elephants were all fantastic and extremely well organised. Thank you tiger and rest the of the team.
