Full description
Following collection from your accommodation in Khao Lak, travel to the elephant sanctuary where you arrive by 9:00AM. Whilst there, enjoy exploring the jungle alongside your gentle giant, before preparing its food as it rests. Following that, feed your elephant whilst surrounded by the amazing hillside jungle scenery. Once back at the park, you can follow the ancient tradition of scrubbing your elephant with a piece of vine harvested from a special tree used to care for elephant skin. Once you are done bathing with your elephant in the rock pool, you are offered a delicious, freshly-cooked Thai lunch. Finally, your tour concludes with you planting food for the elephants as part of the park's conservation program. Once finished in the park, your driver returns you to back to your accommodation.
