It is located on River Tunga and is a beautiful sanctuary. When at the sanctuary, avoid using flash photography as it may anger the elephants.
There is no unethical treatment of elephants at the camp. The wild elephants are brought to the camp and tamed as well as being provided with nutrition and healthcare. Because of this, visitors can interact with the elephants up close and personal and also feed them with the food specially prepared by the Mahouts. Visit before 9 AM to watch the elephants bathe in the backwaters. Do note that no outside food is allowed in the sanctuary.
