I thorough recommend this attraction. The Elephants are really well looked after. Virtually part of the owners family. Elephants were amazingly friendly and gentle and I am sure they enjoyed us riding them.

Yes , it's bumpy around 30 minutes before you get there and also a lot of turns. Would recommend to take some pill for car sickness.
