Elephant Rides

  1. Bardia
    Elephant rides in Bardia are the equivalent of African safaris on the savannah—albeit without the sound of engine. There is a feel of being one with a gargantuan body as you adjust your body to lurch-and-relax motion of the mighty beast. Wading across rivers, moving through the tall grasses to which they give their name, they provide safety and comfort.
 
  1. Chitwan
    Riding an elephant provides a lofty perch from which to cover the rivers, grasslands, and Sal forests of Chitwan. It is also safer than jungle safaris or walks. When you are on an elephant, imagine yourself in one of the many royal hunting trips that were regularly held here in the past, on some of which British kings and queens have joined. You can shoot, too—with cameras.
