Enjoyed a morning walking with the elephants. Handlers were informative and seem to have bonded with the 2 elephants. Great to see them up close and feel their breath and touch their skin. Particularly enjoyed watching them in the water.

Yes it is possible you can brush the elephants. They actually ly down so you can feel them, touch the ears & body.
