You will then come face-to-face with a Burmese elephants. Formerly working as logging elephants, these gentle giants have now been given the chance to live freely in their natural environment and giving visitors a unique opportunity to interact with elephants. Feed and help wash the elephants and learn about the history of elephants in Myanmar.
During the day a delicious lunch will be served prepared using traditional methods and using ingredients from the camp’s organic garden.
