During the guests’ stay with us they will be allotted an elephant, a mahout and a naturalist. The naturalist will teach the guest/s everything they need to know about elephants. The mahout will guide and teach the guest to prepare snacks and meals for the elephant. The guest can spend an entire day and engage in activities such as bathing the elephant, feeding it, learn a few commands, accompany the elephant when it goes to collect grass. All this will be done under the supervision of the mahout and the Naturalist to ensure that the guests have a safe and good time.
Elephant Safaris have remained a popular jungle activity in the Chitwan National park for generations. In the era gone by, such safaris were regularly reserved for hunting parties of Aristocrats and Royals. For some time now, elephant safaris have served as medium through which guests to the region can connect with Chitwan’s forests and its inhabitants. On the safaris, the Mahout leads the elephant on a journey to seek out the forest’s wild animals in their natural setting. The lucky ones often go home with photographic proof of the prized one horned rhino, or even the Bengal tiger! Although the connection with nature and the experience of being in the forest, on the back of an elephant is no second prize!
