Eco-Friendly Elephant Sanctuary (Half Day)

★★★★★★★★★★

Great Experience, but...

We were picked up at our hotel by our guide Tony. Tony spoke good English and kept us well informed at all times.

After all participants were picked up, we drove to a Poopoopaper Park that produces paper from elephant dunk. Here we had a stay of about 40 minutes including a guided tour. It was interesting, but rather extra for the tourists to spend money on the things that were produced from the elephant dunk. And actually we were on the tour to see the elephants...

At about 11 o'clock we finally arrived at the "Sanctuary". We got t-shirts and sport pants to change (no Lanna clothes), so that our clothes don't get dirty.

And then we were allowed to feed the elephants bananas. They were very trusting and didn't seem scared!

Afterwards we chopped sugar cane and put it into our bags and then went for a walk with the elephants. 2 persons per elephant. On our way we went in a mud hole and in the river with the elephants. That was great :)

After that we could take a shower and had lunch, which was okay!

Around 3 p.m. we were again at our hotel. By the visit in the Poopoopaper Park everything was delayed.

It was a great experience to be so close to the elephants. The elephants could move freely when no tourists were there. But when tourists were there, the elephants were directed to them, so that one gets something for his money.... I'm not sure if everything goes so smoothly here, I could see how the elephants were partly pulled by the ear or poked into the bottom with a bamboo stick.
