June 12, 2016 

Morning Program :  Elephant Activities

Good treatment and respect of elephants is paramount to K.E.P. It is our priority to take you to an authentic Thai  small local family elephant village – which looks after and puts at KEP’s disposal a maximum number of 4 elephants only.

Are you an elephant lover ? Would you like to spend enjoyable time with elephants, learn about their lives, ride elephants bareback (not at all on a seat) in a private way, and also enjoy private bathing with elephants in the River Kwai ? Are you concerned about the wellbeing and respect of these exceptional gentle giants ? If so, K.E.P. Kanchanaburi River Kwai Elephant Private Programs, in central Thailand, West of Bangkok, is the very right answer for you

K.E.P Elephant morning  program allows Private Bareback Riding  activities along the River Kwai and fabulous tropical plantations
During the private bareback riding program which lasts minimum 1 hour, with no time limit, you always and only  sit behind the elephant’s neck (never on a seat !), which is the very traditional and natural Mahout (Elephant Carer) way of  bareback riding an elephant .

Magic KEP Elephant Forest Breakfast : Make friend with him by feeding yourself your own elephant prior to private bareback riding together.

Private Bathing with the Elephants in the River Kwai (minimum 45 Minutes)  : Right after bareback riding,  enjoy having a private bath together with elephants in the River Kwai.

Private Bamboo Rafting on the River Kwai  (45 Minutes) : Sail on the River Kwai on board of an exotic bamboo raft, jump from the raft as may times as you like and swim in the River Kwai

A generous authentic Thai private lunch is then prepared and  served in an authentic Thai family riverside restaurant located along the River Kwai.

KEP 1 Half day  program  includes all day return transport, as well as all morning elephant activities ( Private bareback riding + Private bathing with the elephants in the River Kwai + Private bamboo rafting on the River Kwai), as well as a generous private Thai  lunch in an authentic riverside Thai family restaurant + guide assistance.
