This was a special day since I was going to visit an Elephant sanctuary and elephant is my favorite animal.
Krabi Elephant Sanctuary is just like many other sanctuaries in Thailand that protects the elephants who are working in tourism industry for activities such as Elephant Trekking. It provides a retirement home to these elephants, who have been mistreated all their life.
It is a great initiative to create awareness among people, saw so many parents bringing in their children to interact with elephants.
They start off with a nice introductory session briefing us about these elephants, importance of protecting them and also give an idea about the costs involved in taking care of them.
Then we are trained on how to feed sugarcane, pineapple, banana to elephants and then we get a chance to feed them ourselves.
