Elephant safari is an easy and common way of traversing the wilderness areas of country informed Erco Travels agent to the tourists, who were watching the huge animal playfully munching on green leaves lunch in front of him. “I am not sure if I am more nervous or excited”, whispered a tourist to her husband, who too was equally mesmerised and too dumbstruck to utter a word.

But why elephants exclaimed another tourist, who too couldn’t digest the idea of sitting on such a huge animal. Quite used to this kind of response, Erco Travels agent informed them that elephant safari is used primarily because this makes it easy to move around with ease in the forest and the height of the animal gives one a bird’s eye view of the happenings in the forest, which may not be possible in a vehicle.

The agent further explained how each elephant is fitted with a large seat that can accommodate couple of people with ease. And this manner of travel is not recent in India. Elephants were earlier used by the erstwhile kings to commute and even during wars. These animals are extremely trained and elephant being a very intelligent animal moves well to the commands of his trainer.

True to the explanations of the Erco Travels agent, the elephant safari was indeed a pleasurable trip. Undisturbed by the mechanical roar of a moving vehicle, the animals in the Corbett National Park were very comfortable with the presence of elephants and kept occupied in their daily routine giving the tourists enough time and pleasure to watch them at close quarters and even click them to their hearts satisfaction.

In Corbett Tour this safari heightened the thrill as the animal moved majestically through mysterious and dense forests, deep valleys and rugged trails offering a lingering thrill of adventure to the tourists. What’s more? The experience was further enhancedby the cultural enigma of the land.

Interestingly, elephant is one mode that was often used during British regime in India to hunt animals and was even trained as transporters of wood from the thick forests to build the extensive rail network. In fact, most of the snaps of British hunting trips are mostly incomplete without the presence of elephants.

Despite the thrill, tourists planning to use elephant safaris also need to observe some do’s and dont’s of wearing clothes that merge well the forest surroundings and be well equipped with binoculars, camera and water bottles; however loud cheering and munching during the safari should be avoided to attract unnecessary attention.

Erco Travels agent informed the tourist that the elephants used in the safaris are well looked after by the trainers just like a member of their family and this is the reason why the animals are so popular in major National parks like Corbett, Bandhavgarh National Park, Manas National Park, Kaziranga and Kanha National Park to name a few. So what are you waiting for? Just pack your bags and prior to that get in touch with Erco Travels agents to arrange it all for you.
