Your guide will give you a briefing of the days activities before introducing you to the Tuk Tuks!

The day will not all be about driving your tuk tuk as we will also be spending a couple of hours at one of the areas most ethical elephant camps. Before meeting the elephants you will be served a tasty and filling lunch before being introduced to the happy elephants. At this camp you will be able to get up close and feed these lovely animals before walking them to the river for their bath. Feel free to get involved with their bath time and bring your swim suit!
