Spend the day exploring the Lao jungle beside baby elephant, Kit, and his mother, Tongkhun, and aunt, Mahn. After laboring in logging camps their entire lives, these gentle giants now spend their days splashing in the water, sauntering through the jungle, and nibbling to their heart’s content on the jungle greenery and treats guests can harvest specially for them.
Amantaka exclusively collaborates with MandaLao Elephant Sanctuary and Tours, an organisation focused on the care and comfort of the Laotian elephants, providing the animals with best medical care and practicing a non-riding policy for the gentle giants. MandaLao uses only positive reinforcement training, pioneered by their elephant master, Prasop Tipprasert.
In addition to an interactive day with Kit and his family, guests will enjoy a visit to the seldom seen Tad Kuang Song waterfall and ethnic Khmu village of Ban Hua Tad. MandaLao is committed to ensuring the protection of both rescued elephants and of the local Lao communities. In joining this experience, guests will not only support these efforts but embark on a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
