The day started out well with an on-time pick-up at our hotel. The ride would've been better if the movie shown hadn't been overdubbed in Thai with Thai subtitles. When we got to the camp we immediately met the elephants and got changed, we were all rearing to go and then we just sat around and he gave us the directions for the elephants, but it felt very by-the-way and not structured. Then we all got a turn to practice on an elephant, quite scary and exhilirating at the same time. After this we took a short stroll and then it was lunch time, which was nice. Then it was more waiting around, we'd all been finished for at least 20 minutes, and then it was off to the waterfall. A wonderful walk along a path in beautiful surroundings. We got to a pool under a small waterfall and bathed and brushed our gentle giants. Then it was back to the buses and on our way back. A word of warning to the person sitting at the back, your bum will hurt! Oh and bring water or some moneysince they only give one bottle of water per person. A hat is also a good idea. Thanks Jan and your amazing team of Mahouts!
