Here’s Matt and his new elephant friend! This elephant certainly liked him, sneaking it’s trunk up from behind to grab the tip out of his hand!
I love elephants, especially these ones! All the elephants at the camp were so well trained and very odedient.
Our elephant carried us for 60 minutes, through the pouring rain and we want to show our appreciation! Everyone, give us a hand for Somboon!
Today we ventured out to Maesa Elephant Camp in Chiang Mai, a stunning park set in the jungle where over 50 Elephants are bred and looked after.
Unfortunately the weather poured it down while we were riding the elephant which made the ride a little crazy. Luckily the elephant knew how to handle the mud (there was a lot of mud!).
The elephant ride lasted 1 hour. There was a monsoon during, so we had waterproofs on and a huge umbrella. At certain points I wondered if the elephant would make it up the steep inclines. Do elephants slip?!?
