Well, this was an experience! The feeling of a tonne of meat flexing under your feet...well that's how one lady described it!
The elephant trekking was great fun! First, it took us across a river, through the jungle, along the slippery mud path and back again. Slow and steady, the elephant rocked from side to side as we hung on for dear life! I was a bit surprised when the "driver" asked if I wanted to ride on its head. What a view!
After we returned, we got to feed our elephant and take it to the river for a bath. Then, we hiked around the area some more to see other younger elephants (one had a baby on its way) and then the boys went for a dip themselves.
Eat your heart out Tarzan!
