Elephant project experience is an indispensable project in Thailand, but with the increasing international call for elephant protection, many people feel that it is not appropriate to go to the traditional elephant camp. Elephant protection camp will give you another choice. In these elephant camps, you can learn elephant language with mahout, communicate with elephants intimately, you can also feed them bananas, bathe them, and play with them in the forest. This is the most natural and harmless way to get along with them.
