The three of us had ridden a elephant. It was an exhilarating experience. My daughter was thrilled to the core. The Mahavat was highly trained and handled the elephant with extreme caution. The elephant Bhadra was also very decent and well mannered.

We road the elephant around a pathway. Easy to get on and off at a platform at the height of the elephant. If you are uncomfortable straddling your legs across the back of the elephant then do not recommend. And if you have shorter legs, more comfortable up front. You are walked around a pathway and the guy following beside,... More

One of the highlights of my trip. I am an elephant lover . Mornings are quieter. Take your cameras.they are also take pictures and you receive a cd with your pics. Short visit . Ride is approx 15 minutes . You can feed the elephants at an additional fee.

We loved the elephant ride here. Along with the ride, you have an option of Elephant bath and Elephant Shower. It will be recommended to take extra cloths with you as you will be drenched during Elephant bath witch is optional.

Tickets are bit costly at Rs 350/- but is worth for animal safari lovers. Kids would enjoy the most. Prefer early morning and evening ride

I visited with my two teenage children and we loved the experience. Being off season and arriving early we were the only people there. Facilities at the start/finish point are very basic with two toilets and one shower/changing room and so I imagine not pleasant when busy. We took the 1/2 day experience which involved riding for about one hour... More
