ElephantsElephant Safari in India
Elephant is associated with man since time immemorial. In the past, Elephant played a crucial role in the making and breaking of the history. Elephants were used by the Kings as a means of transportation and also to fight battles. Elephants are a common sight on our roads and temples and as a source of power still find use in forestry operations. Forests of India are well known for their elephant populations, where elephants roam freely with other animals like tiger, leopard , gaur, lion, monkeys and deer. They are an ideal option to explore some inaccessible places in the jungles. Elephant safari helps the visitor to travel through such difficult terrains where even jeeps can't venture.

Elephant safari is the best and safest way to explore the remotest and densest areas of the forests. If you are more keen in combing denser areas of the forests and search for some fierce creatures, then Elephant Ride is the best option. Riding an elephant takes you back to the royal era, when only the Kings use to ride on these majestic creatures. Elephhant Safaris are equipped with a howdah, a large seat on which they and the visitors sit, and with an umbrella over the riders head. The elephant moves slowly and steadily, that's why this type of safari is ideal in and around the wild regions, where riding the elephant can give you an easy access for viewing the unknown wildlife. More of all an elephant safari tour in the tropical wildlife sanctuaries of India gets you up, close and personal with these majestic animals.

During your ride, you can watch the wild elephants taking bath in the water bodies. If you are interested in photography, then you can easily take pictures of the wilds while riding and as a souvenir of the fantastic journey into the wilds.
