Pick up from your accommodation between 8:15 – 09:00 am. We leave for Manifa Elephant Camp. On the way we stop at Ban Xang Hai (Whisky Village), where the local rice wine is produced. At about 10 AM, we arrive at Manifa Elephant Camp and start “HALF DAY – MAHOUT INTRODUCTION PROGRAM“.
After a few important introductions and a brief orientation, you will get straight into interacting with the manifa elephants and start the mahout training program – get used to being close to and comfortable with one of the 17 elephants – share in the experience of cruelty free riding (optional bareneck or howdah) – join in the snacktime feeding and have the option of splashing around in the water with the elephants during one of their many daily bath time sessions.
We enjoy a beautiful buffet style lunch at the restaurant – overlooking the Mekong river. At about 1 PM, we start going back to Luang Prabang. (End of Service 1:30-2:00 PM)
