Why choose Elefantastic?
As you probably already know, it is very important to pick the right elephant sanctuary when visiting a country. Unfortunately, so many elephants are being mistreated all around the world and beaten for exploitation and tourism. It’s your duty to do as much research as possible (read lots of individuals reviews) before choosing which elephant sanctuary to visit. Elefantastic offer a distinctive and rewarding experience with the elephants. You will be able to practice speaking to the elephants through different spoken commands. And instead of riding, you will walk with the elephants to a close-by village. This shows the elephants respect and allows them to be undisturbed, abused or exploited.
Elefantastic does not allow tourists to ride the elephants. No matter what elephant sanctuary tell you, if you’re allowed to ride elephants then these elephants are not being treated well. So any elephant sanctuary that promotes this should be avoided at all costs. The unfortunate truth is that baby elephants are taken away from their mothers and tortured and beaten in order to ‘break their spirit’. This means they’ll follow human commands more willingly as they have no fight left. Therefore, elephants may seem relaxed when you ride them but they are in fact just beaten down and submissive. This is a horrible thought but it’s very important that people are made aware. So they can choose a sanctuary that ensures the health and well-being of elephants is a priority. And not exploiting them for tourism.
