Description

Weighing between 4,000 and 10,000 pounds the Asian elephant represents one of the most remarkable and intelligent creatures on the planet. Important in Asian folklore as they are believed to be cousins of the clouds and hold the ability to cause lightning, these complex land animals provide a captivating opportunity for human interaction. This is an experience you won't want to pass up.

The Elephant Village you will be introduced to was opened in 1973 and serves as a sanctuary for former working elephants who were once used as the backbone of heavy lifting in the jungles of Thailand. No longer able to be used in that capacity they come to this particular camp for care as their habitats continue to diminish throughout the country. This safe haven is a non profit private company with all proceeds going to the guardianship of all elephants on the property.

Your amazing trek through the jungle is a once in a lifetime adventure that will bring you up close and personal with these mesmerizing mammals. From the ox cart ride to the Thai lunch this full immersion amongst one of Asia's most treasured animals will permeate your mind for the entirety of your vacation.

In Cozumel we enjoyed the snorkeling that we did off a catamaran. The staff was friendly, very professional, and helpful with my first time snorkeling daughter. Grand Cayman we went to sting ray city with a trip and snorkeling. Staff and trip was amazing, crew very helpful and fun. in Jamaica we did a Dunn's River Falls excursion and private beach. We had fun but were not impressed with the staff, and their timeliness (waited around alot),

Traveling into Russia can be nerve-wracking (and getting more so every day) -- but ShoreTrips made it easy by providing all of the paperwork and instructions, as well as organizing good guides.
