During my time working at the conservation I got one chance to ride an elephant. I rode him while we were giving them a bath and it was amazing. He got up and walked and I felt so high in the sky and it was an amazing feeling!

Riding an elephant is probably one of the most uncomfortable, yet amazing experiences I have ever undertaken. The shear size of an Indian Elephant was astounding, but it was their gentleness that made me see how beautiful they were. When riding on the elephant's neck all you had to do was tap him on the head and his trunk would come rushing up over his head to take the bananas we were feeding him. 

Elephants probably are one of the most amazing creatures on earth.

Bali is beautiful. Although I don't think ill ever ride an elephant again. they should be in the wild not used to entertain us. lesson learned.

Bali 2014 - Rode & swam an Asian Elephant.  Regretfully that his trainer carried a bull hook & the way they were kept made me sad, their website made the park seem a lot more humane.

I went elephant riding in Thailand on an elephant farm which only has elephants whom have been a victim of cruelty. First we feed the elephant and then we start learning to ride them on their bare neck. Although it was a bit scary on this height and this wobbly, it was an awesome experience, which I would recommend to everyone!

In 2010 me and my family visited South Africa. It was an experience I will never forget. There was the option to ride an elephant!! Cmon, who doesn't want to do that in your live ! So after a conversation with my parents (it was ofcourse expensive...) I got myself on top of the elephant! It was even higher than I thought it would be. Now I was as high as some of the trees! Despite it cost some money, I'm glad I did it and it was worth it!

 I became a mahout on a weekend trip to Bintan on a jungle train in 2014, apparently sitting on an elephants back turned ass numb after a 30 minute ride.

I rode an elephant in the jungles of Thailand. It was a great experience. There are places to do it at the zoo, but the elephants seem abused and you don't get to steer. We went into the jungle with locals and rode them by ourselves. It was a much better experience: Very "Temple of Doom".

 When I was little and rode an elephant I didn't really understand that animals are not for this use. Now, looking back, I feel pretty bad that i did this.
