Hands down one of the best experiences in my life was the day we spent at the Ran Tong Elephant Sanctuary. These amazing creatures are rescued by the facility from trekking camps, logging work and circus shows. The relationships they have with the staff was really beautiful to see, it was like they were all family. We had the privilege of hanging out with the “toddlers” in the morning which are elephants that are 3 or 4 years old and also got to see a baby that was just 2 months old. In the afternoon we spent the day with our 27 year old elephant Bodi who we got to ride bareback down to a river and give him a mud bath. When it was time to leave I got a little teary eyed because they are truly such majestic creatures with beautiful spirits. It was an honor to be able to spend the day with them!
