Why you should not swim or mud bathe with elephants 

Elephants love to bathe in the water and play in the mud either on their own or with other elephants. To do this, they need space to splash, roll around, submerge, and to cover themselves in lovely thick mud; this is why it is so important for visitors NOT to bathe WITH elephants.

Observation Programs are becoming increasingly popular as visitors learn about the importance of allowing elephants to bathe in peace.

Choose an elephant experience which offers a program where you can stand on the bank or sit quietly in an Observation Hut observing the elephants from a distance. Not only is it both educational and fascinating to watch elephants behaving naturally, visitors are also able to take the most stunning photos and videos of very happy elephants; taking home memories to last a lifetime.


Nature's great masterpiece, an elephant; 

the only harmless great thing.

John Donne
