Day 5
Today we must use elephants to carry supplies and porter us across streams and marshes. This area is so remote it takes almost 2 days to get to the nearest road. There are no trails so your guides will cut their way through the jungle in some areas. To cross over a mountain range you can ride the elephants if you wish as the trail is almost straight up and down. The elephant need to use their elbows and knees in some places to get up the mountain. Lunch will be on the trail. Tonight will be camping again along a stream where everyone can clean up and swim. Dinner will be cooked for you here. You guides will have picked many vegetables and herbs from the jungle and other interesting food such as insects, fish and reptiles for you to try. (B,L,D)

Here is what our previous clients had to say about the Safari with us.

Kylie and I would just like to express our amazement of how great our Elephant and White Water Rafting adventure holiday was with your tour group. The scenery, the guides, the food, the elephants!!… they were all beyond our expectations and it made our holiday so fun and memorable. You have done a fantastic job of finding the most beautiful locations that feel so secluded and removed from the rest of civilisation that it made for such an adventurous holiday. We can't wait to do another holiday through your company!
