We offer you to be part of the daily life of our elephants by taking care of them, learning how do they live, walking with them in the jungle, bathing with them in the river... There is no riding here as we support the well being of our family of elephants and we do our best to give them a happy life. Come join us, meet our babies and witness the magnificence of these amazing creatures. They are waiting to share with you an unforgettable experience!
