Picnic with the Asian Elephant

30 minutes’ drive from the Retreat is the Thekkady Jungle elephant Camp.

Grab this rare opportunity to experience India on elephant back. Take a majestic trip through spice plantations where the gentle breeze will refresh you with spice-scented air as your steed slowly ambles on. Or why not get up close and personal? Our elephant trainers will accompany you to where you can bathe these gentle giants. (If they're in the playful mood, brace yourself for a tuskfull of river water!) End the day feeding the elephants by hand – a memory that will last lifetime.

Choose from an half hour joyride atop Asia’s biggest mammal, to spending half a day watching the elephants bathe as well as get fed between their timber moving duties.
