Welcome Maxi, our Newest Family Member!
Come see our newest addition to our herd! We are very excited to introduce you to Maxi, our new baby male (bull) elephant! He was born 23 MAY 2013 and is currently in our nearby jungle nursing with mamma getting stronger every day. Book a tour with us and you may take a small trek through the jungle to see him!
We are Howdah (elephant seat) Free!
We are very happy to announce that Elephant Village has phased out the elephant seat, also know as the ‘howdah’. Our elephants are getting happier every day! 🙂 You will now ride bareback on your elephant during riding activities, 1 person per elephant. This makes things much more fun for you and much more comfortable for our elephants! Try one of our intimate experiences by becoming a mahout for a day or two!
