If you haven't ridden an Elephant before its well worth the money, even if its a 15 min circuit through the trees. The guide took plenty of pictures with our camera and it was a really lovely experience. The Elephants seemed happy enough and were well fed and looked after, cant imagine it is much fun going round in circles... More

We arrived at the end of the day as our guide had been warned that they were busy. By the time we got there I think our elephant was a bit fed up and I could sympathise - very boring ferrying people around the same old, quite short, route. We were also comparing it with a happier experience in Thailand... More

we were thinking they would take us into the deep jungle where we would be able to spot at least a deer if not the tigers but they just roamed around in the area next to the main boundaries or the parriyar wild life sanctuary and there was no fun element other than an elephant ride- only for kids

About 15 minutes ride on elephant. Bit costly but you will enjoy it. On the way they will give you general information on trees on the way.

Bought the whole package, ride, log pull and shower. Enjoyed it completely. The ride is a simple but just the tip of the iceberg. The log pull, although interesting is only observational. The shower is a unique experience... You get washed by an elephant, sort of like the Flintstones. If you're here, and you're coming from a place with no... More
