Good attitude shown by the person managing the elephants. Staff even went all the way with his bike to get something for us which they did not have to serve. Gave us all the explanation about the elephants and their habits when asked.

Awesome experience, even my 11 month old daughter enjoyed it a lot. It was worth the money (350 per person) they charged

We chose the 2 hour package include an elephant ride, timber carrying, elephant bath & feeding. What an experience it was!! to be showered by a elephant is one experience that's worth the drive to Thekkady all the way from Chennai! The elephant who took on the safari - the 17 year old Lakshmi - has to be one the... More
