Learn about the mahout’s (elephant handler’s) daily routine as you watch a demonstration of an elephant health check. Enjoy exploring the jungle alongside your gentle giant, prepare her food while she rests, and then feed her surrounded by amazing hillside jungle scenery. Back at the Park, you can follow the ancient tradition of scrubbing your elephant with a piece of vine harvested from a special tree that is used to care for her skin.

You will then be asked to help plant food for the elephants as part of our conservation programme. Before your experience ends, you will get the opportunity to meet our baby elephant.
