Volunteering to Care for Elephants at an Elephant Center in Surin, Thailand
         

The elephant project was amazing... the basic accommodation made the experience even more special, a bucket shower and living in a wooden hut. The locals were very welcoming and made a great effort with making conversation despite many struggling with English. Each morning we were woken by the sound of elephants and not long after the village came to life as morning work started.

All of the project workers were so helpful and passionate about their work on the project. I learnt so much here about the Asian elephant and Thailand culture.

The walks with the elephants, bathing and feeding them as well as the living amongst the mahouts I'll never forget, but it’s something that cannot be explained, you just have to do it!

Will definitely go back and hopefully raise some money to help build new and replace old shelters for the elephants.
