This was a magical and very intimate experience with these special animals. I was eased into my elephant experience by my guide A. He made me feel calm and at ease with the elephants throughout the entire day with his friendly patient nature. You are able to walk side by side with the elephants through the jungle. Lunch in the was like a rustic Thai banquet. You won't be left hungry. And a walk around the park afterwards was a helpful insight into the operations of the park. Highly recommended.
