It is a nice experience especially for the kids. Plenty elephants are there for sighting. Ride is good and lasts for atleast half hour to 45 minutes. You also can have your own personal time with an elephant by bathing and feeding it in a small artificial pond.

Good fun, we took the 45 min ride package followed by washing the elephant and having an elephant shower (with clean water the ellie sucked up its trunk). We then fed the ellie, Meera, some bananas before she went back to the shade. One of the highlights of our trip. Ellies looked healthy and well cared for.

This is a must do activity for Visitors in Thekady. My kids loved the experience of riding friendly elephants. We went through the cardamom plantation and was a superb scene around. Feeding those giant animals was an excellent experience too.

Apart from a few worries about wild animals in captivity, the elephants seemed very well cared for and we had a great time. We rode through cardomom plantations, watched a log handling display, fed "our" Ramba some fruit but the highlight was bathing her and getting showered in return - a wonderful couple of hours.

We went there in Dec 2015. Our booking was online. We have enjoyed the elephant ride and bath. The elephants were beautiful and healthy.

I did a half day package at Elephant Junction back in 2012, and thought it was just as good when I returned with my boyfriend recently. We thought the half day package was enough. It included a 2 hour elephant walk up through the plantation, to the Plantation owner's house where we were dressed in traditional Keralan outfits and had... More

You may enjoy elephant ride and get yourself photographed with them. You may also give elephant bath. The booking office also provides services such as jeep safari, border hiking etc. There is a theatre where cultural programs are shown. The rates are a bit on higher side. Check the rates of safari with other agencies before booking.

I must admit that we were dubious of this "elephant experience", having had a lot of experience of Asian Elephants before. We were delighted to find that this was a very enjoyable experience, despite the rather cool weather. When we arrived we were shown a variety of packages to pick from. They were anything from a half hour ride to... More

Eventhough the location is quite tough to find out there are enough sign boards to take you without any problems. The place is nice & worth every penny.
