What’s Not Included?
Program Description – Elephant Adventure
Besides being notable throughout Thailand for its sensational scenery, Umphang is well known for its elephant population. Traditionally, these Asian Elephants have been carried out farm work and logging. Fortunately, the elephants are treated with a higher level of respect these days.
The program allows you to simultaneously interact with elephants while discovering one of Thailand’s most breathtaking landscapes. You will have the experience of spending time, bonding and fully engaging with these incredible elephants as they roam in their natural habitat. You will be able to observe, walk with, swim with, and even bathe the elephants on a daily basis because there is a beautiful lake on the property. If you like you can also choose to go rafting on the lake as well.
Additionally, you will help with the preparation of food for the elephants. Typically, this comes in the form of Banana grass, sugarcane and banana plants. You will be spending time alongside experienced mahouts, who have spent their entire lives gaining an understanding of the elephants and how best to care for them.
Please remember that we are here to take care of these graceful creatures and there will be no exploitation of the animals occurring at this project.
This schedule can be changed and/or amended depending on weather conditions, local conditions and unforeseen circumstances.
