    This is such an amazing experience. I really like that the elephants there were really taken care off. This is a really nice way to spend some time with these cute creatures. It is also so cute that the elephants were named after Bai Fern and Mario. Great post, thanks for sharing.

    Ah, Just my type of topic! Thank you so much for sharing and spreading the word. Elephants are such awesome giants and am looking forward to having an experience similar to yours. It’s more than about time that elephants get the respect they truly deserve.

      Indeed Sylvia, it’s certainly time. They are amazing creatures and it was perfect to see them so happy in the forest. I’m sure you will savour your experience with them too!

    Wow, what an incredible experience! We visited Elephant Nature Park, where the elephants were in captivity (although as ethically as possible) but I would have loved to see the roaming free in the wild. Great photos too!

    I had goosebumps reading this. What an absolutely fantastic experience x

  6. It’s so great to find out about this project and read your wonderful article about your experience. This really is tourism at its most sustainable, and hopefully there will be lots more projects like this in Thailand in the future.

    So great that you discovered Mahouts and are sharing more about them! (I visited in 2017 and am a big fan of what they are doing). We loved staying in the village too, but sounds like the new accommodation is a big plus. Sunti has grown quite a bit from what I can see! 🙂

      Thanks Ellie! Yes they have wonderful program, and it’s great to see it’s expanding into more communities now. We loved our time there and hope to return one day.
