Thoose poor elephants !!
How often do we pick up a newspaper, magazine or turn on TV to a documentary of the abused or exploited elephant?
This problem may not be as significant as global warming, but it is of "grave" concern to us in a country where our elephants are not only indigenous, but are of religious and symbolic significance.
"Thiptravel " is significantly concerned with the condition and welfare of our
"National Symbol" and would like to invite you to not only help those in need, but to first hand involve yourself in the life of the elephant and its mahout.
Join us for a day, three or seven if you like, or as long as you wish. You'll become one with the elephant and its mahout in their natural jungle environment.
No! no picnic lunches or restaurants. We bring rice portions only and live off the land. As both you and the elephant forage for food, roots, grain and plants, you'll also find and learn the use of natural medicines the elephants know by instinct.
You'll develop a feel for the personality of "Chang" and his contentment with human company. Chang is a social animal and will happily bond with humans, as is attested by the relationship between he (or she) and their mahout.
You'll learn to find joy in bathing, feeding and the playful antics of the elephant, as you ride (no harness or saddle), walk, lead, or be led by your companion.Once you've experienced this adventure
