An awesome experience. The elephants were really well treated and had free roam of the sanctuary. The elephants are happy to be around the volunteers. Our guide Lucy was amazing. We really enjoyed it.

We went on the half day tour. Got to feed the elephant some bananas, take a mud bath with them and then rinse off in the river. Such an amazing experience. We loved every single minute of it
