Adventure filled day (March 1, 2012)

by tripadvisor
   We booked this tour directly through our resort and was not disappointed. Prompt pick up from our resort - had to change buses and met our guide Don. The journey to the camp was approx 1.5 hours. On the way Don pointed out points of interest, and also outlined our programme for the day - elephant trekking, then a swim at the waterfall, followed by lunch then white water rafting. On arrival at the camp we were offered cool drinks or coffee/tea and banana fritters. Lockers are available for your valuables and clothing. After 20 mins we hopped in the back of a car and were taken to the elephants Jumped on the elephant with our mahout (had a photo taken) and away we went - we sat on the seat on the elephants back but then the mahout jumped off and invited my husband to drive! I couldn't remember the commands for stop, go which weren't needed as we had an obedient elephant. I jumped down from the seat and we were trekking through the jungle on an elephant - just awesome! Our mahout took lots of photos all the way on the trek. Incredible how sure footed these huge animals are in muddy conditions. At the end of the trek we could buy a basket of bananas and feed them. You can also tip your mahout if they have given good service - (we did as he was constantly taking photos). Back into the ute to the main camp then off to the waterfall. The climb to the fall wasn't difficult and our group of about 15 jumped in the water - it was freezing! Swam and laughed till the next group arrived and we were off again back to camp. Enjoyed a 3 course lunch with tom ya, chicken and cashew nut, rice and a veggie dish. Delicious. Made our way to the white water rafting (I was a bit nervous, as I had done it in New Zealand and was terrified!), but this looked to be a little tame. After a safety briefing and being fitted for life jackets and helmets it was time to go. You have 2 guides in the boat, so if you just want to hang on for dear life instead of paddling you can. The only thing I didn't particularly like was the number of boats that went down at one time - there must have been at least 20 - and after each rapid they schooled you up again to wait for all the boats to finish the rapid - then it was off again. The rapids were quite tame - but it was good for first timers Photographers along the way to capture the action. Jumped back in a ute to make the journey back to camp, where you could grab a drink and a shower. Photos of our day were available for purchase, then back on the bus for the journey home. A very well priced and extremely well organised tourist venture. Saw elephants on the way to and from the camp.

Great day our for the family (January 22, 2012)

by tripadvisor
   We visited in January 2012 along with our chilren aged 12 and 9. We took the Elephant trekking and white water rafting tour. We were picked up in a little bus transported to a meeting point and transferred to a larger bus to begin the journey to the mainland. Upon arrival at the camp we were more than impressed with our choice. We were taken to the river where we were issued with life vests and helmets and after a safety briefing we were in the rafts and going down the river. It was a little bit bumpy and at times a bit scary but an awesome experience. We all arrived safely and enjoyed it. We had a lovely lunch, thai food cooked on site, very nice and followed this by the elephant trekking. This was a lot of fun and an awesome experience, we were able to ride the elephant ourselves and our guide took our camera and got some wonderful photos of the experience for us. I would highly recommend this company and this tour, our family had a wonderful day, the tour guide was fantastic. Another touch is the purchase of a DVD of your day at the end which shows your adventures, a great laugh and a wonderful keepsake
