This is the second post in video contributor Kelley Ferro’s five-part video series on Thailand. Part one is here.
One of the perks of the Four Seasons Golden Triangle is that all guests are invited to participate in a half-day mahout training. Mahouts are the elephant trainers and caretakers. On property, there are four elephants rescued out of horrible living conditions and now given the chance at a more peaceful, healthy life. Each mahout cares for one elephant and they form a special bond and way of communication. I was beyond excited to get to spend the day with an elephant, learning about my particular girl’s past, how to interact with her and eventually how to ride her, which was mostly just hanging on as she ambled through the forest. This was an eye-opening experience and I’ll never forget the surprise at the end (watch the video to see what it was)!
