The River

The River hosting our sanctuary is a beautiful nest, alternating local village and jungle. A wild river run through the camp, permitting to our elephants to refresh, clean themselves and drink pure water.

Walk with elephants

the elephants are up for a walk in the jungle where they can find wild food like bamboo, leaves or even bark. They also like this moment for scratching against tree trunks or play with mud. They can drink pure mountain water at different places on the way.

Bath with The Elepahnts

Join the elephants at the river to help bathe them, brush them to clean the dirt and play with them in the water.
