tour description

In the morning, get picked up from your Luang Prabang hotel and transfer to MandaLao, an ethical elephant sanctuary dedicated to providing intimate, ethical elephant experiences. After an in-depth introduction to elephant behaviour and communication, meet the gentle giants themselves. Get to know your new animal friends by helping bathe the elephants in the river then take the elephants on a walk, trekking through beautiful Lao gardens and lush jungle. After some final treats for the elephants, begin the trek back to MandaLao and enjoy a hearty lunch of traditional Lao cuisine made primarily from MandaLaos' own organic produce. Once full, leave for Luang Prabang and be dropped off back at your hotel around 13:30 hrs.
