Elephant Ride

Elephant ride is a very interesting activity, conducted in Thekkady. Elephants are and will always be a fantasy to people. One can enjoy a ride on an elephant through a spice plantation where a light gentle breeze will refresh you with the mild scented air.

Elephants are a common sight on our roads and temples and are still used in forestry operations. 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! Most of all, an elephant ride in the Periyar wildlife sanctuary gets you up close and personal with these majestic animals.

Riding an elephant takes you back to the royal era, when only the Kings used to ride on these majestic creatures. Elephant Safari in thekkady is 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. 

Usually this activity lasts from 30min to 1hr and will be accompanied by guards. At a time only two tourists can take the ride. 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 wildlife while riding and cherish them as souvenirs of your fantastic journey into the forest. Hotel Tigers Roare provides you an excellent opportunity to enjoy this activity if you choose to stay with us. Visit
