Full description
Start with pickup from your hotel in the morning or the afternoon, depending on the option selected. Upon arrival, your English-speaking tour guide will give you an introduction to the sanctuary and the elephants.

Take some bananas and offer them to the elephants. Get acquainted with your new friends before hopping into the mud pool with them. Give the elephants a relaxing mud spa. Elephants naturally soak their skin with mud as a way to protect their skin from the sun, just like humans put on sunscreen. After the fun mud spa, enjoy bathing with the elephants in the water pool. Brush off the mud and exfoliate their skin to give them a relaxing pampering.

Next, learn how to prepare food and herbal medicine for elephants. The herbal medicine is a mixture of multiple nutrient sources needed by elephants to stay healthy. They are like a supplement to their diet. Enjoy relaxing and feeding the elephants their herbal medicine. This is a perfect photo opportunity. Learn how to make eco-paper from elephant dung and take back the paper as a souvenir to show your friends and family.
