We may have 25 minutes drive to the valley before continuing walk down the valley through the forest towards the hut in the jungle of the project where the guide explains about the Bunong Elephant Project including the herd of elephants and learn more about their history, character, behavior, body language and relationship with mahout family. Before walking alongside the elephants, you can feed them buckets of bananas. Follow and observe the elephants when they walk through the jungle eating bamboo or grass.
In order to ensure that the elephants get enough food for all day, at noon, they must be taken to pastures for at least one hour and a half. They eat up to 100 kg of vegetation per day to sustain themselves. When they are grazing, you may have a picnic lunch by the river. The hut gives you the best views of the jungle valley and many species of birds.
In the afternoon, the mahout will take the elephants to the river for a wash, and you are welcomed to give them a hand in the water. This will be absolutely a memorable experience during your adventure trip when you go swim with and wash the elephants. Before walking back out of the jungle, say goodbye to the elephants.
