Welcome back

Welcome back to Lauren, Alexis and Luke for the second time. First time the Assi family came was 5 years ago. They had such a fantastic time Lauren wanted to return to make sure the kids would still remember their time. As Alexis said, "it is the best vacation I have ever had" and this family travels a lot! Thank you for looking after Rumruay - Elephantstay again!


Daily routine

Bathing and cleaning an elephant is one of the highlights of our program.
As you see, it takes more then a few hands to clean our elder elephants.

Jenny 17 times!

Jumbo welcome back for the 17th time! Jenny is our first #ElephantstayerGold Hall of Famer! Jenny's first visit was in 2006 She looked after Loong Sap many times before her passing. It was the connection she made with Loong Sap that inspired her to form Elephant Encounters, tours giving others the same wonderful experiences that she has had. Jenny now takes care of #Rumruay and has formed a special friendship with her as well. From regular stays, fundraisers and friendship we thank Jenny for her invaluable support.
