Swimming with Elephants
We had the absolute pleasure of spending one whole day with these magnificent creatures. We rode them bareback into the forests, fed them, mud-bathed them (and them us - cost me a new camera lens and new glasses ..... ) and rode them out to a river where we washed the mud off and swam with them for about an hour.
Should you be interested, this is a small family company ran by local Thai people up near the Burmese border. They are a wonderful family, taking great care of their animals and I promised to give them a bit of advertisement. Have a look at the booking (Western) company site here:
but if you wanna contact Joe, the local farmer, directly and get a better price try him at email@example.com
