Feeding and bathing with elephants

I wanted to feed elephants more and more on my trip so a few of us independently booked a trip to a conservation camp. We had to do a lot of research to make sure we were not going somewhere where they harm them and put their needs first.


We arrived and fed the elephants sugar cane, it’s safe to say they were a hungry bunch.

There were 13 in total and then we made our way to the river to bathe with them. You are placed on the elephant without any basket or benches and are able to give them a bath.


Let’s just say mine gave me one too. I really enjoyed this experience and glad I did it. To begin with I did want to be let off as I thought I’d get thrown into the river. But it was great.
