We booked the full day elephant camp and mahout training and had a brilliant day. After a long drive up to the elephant camp and stopping at a market to buy bananas, we arrived at the camp. At first sight the chains looked upsetting, but spending a whole day there you see how well they are looked after and how often they get out to walk down the river and bath in the water. We learnt some elephant language and practised getting on and off the elephants as the mahouts do. We had a lovely curry dish for lunch. We then took the trek down the river to wash the elephants, then gave them a mud bath! At the end you get a free certificate and a chance to buy a framed photo for 200 baht. I would recommend the trip to anyone, it was a highly enjoyable experience.
