Experience the unforgettable charm of elephants at the Four Seasons Tented Camp Golden Triangle as you learn about the lives of these gentle giants.
My Elephant and I
Did you know that elephants have six sets of teeth over their lifetime? Or that they don’t actually love peanuts? Learn more about elephants in the best possible way – by keeping them company in their own natural habitat. This immersive experience begins at the Elephant Camp, where your mahout guide explains how elephant anatomy works – a lesson that is sure to be full of surprises!
Once you have the basics down, set off on a walk through the wilderness with your elephant companions. Stop by the pond to see their playful side as they splash about happily and drink water by the gallon. As you make your way through the grassland together, the mahout tells you more about the behavioral traits of these gentle giants. Observe closely and you will find that each elephant has its own distinct personality – some are mischievous, others are nurturing, while a few love to showboat.
Next up is bath-time at the river, a cherished daily ritual for elephants and their mahouts. Afterwards, head to the bamboo hut for some well-deserved refreshments – bananas for the freshly bathed elephants and a platter of delicious snacks for you. Conclude this unforgettable experience with a photo session alongside your new friends – these precious mementos are sure to be treasured for years to come.
This experience can accommodate a maximum of 6 guests, and is available every day at 9:00 am and 2:00 pm.
