相信不少人到泰國北部,尤其是清邁時,都會看到不少有關大象的旅遊活動。它可說是除了烹飪班,zip-lining等之外最受歡迎的”必做”之一。

不過和大象互動的活動也分很多種,而我們最後選擇去Elephant Jungle Sanctuary的原因為:

開心和健康的小象~

1)大象的健康:我們主要是想和大象互動和見識一下它們的自然環境,所以我們要找一間對大象好的地方。

在網上查看一下後我發現大象並不適合被人騎,這對它們的健康不好,而且很多時候它們在被騎前都會受到虐待,所以才會乖乖的被人騎。而在Elephant Jungle Sanctuary的大象都是受到照顧的。

2)價錢:對四個剛出社會的女生來說,我們實在沒有很多錢。

 

在網上和當地看遍所有大象活動資料後,我們決定2,400Baht包接送和午餐的Elephant Jungle Sanctary是價錢最合理和對大象最好的一間.

預約大象團

我們在酒店找到它的介紹,然後就問職員是否可以幫我們預訂。我們在事前有試過直接在網上預約,可是並沒有任何回應。可是由職員打電話去就可以立即確定。

不過由酒店或旅社預定的話可要把全數立即付出。而你的帳單就是”門票”。

 

出發到Elephant Jungle Sanctuary

帶我們去清邁北部山區的tuk tuk

我們訂的是全日行程,而tuk tuk在8:00-8:30就到我們酒店門口等。在查看我們的帳單後我們就馬上出發去接其他遊客,再到清邁市北上的山區。

雖然tuk tuk是很地道,可是到最後時我們有整整11個人在車上,而一路上的風沙也很大,所以那兩個小時的旅程也滿辛苦的。途中我們停了一次,可去洗手間,而司機也買了很多香蕉等可餵大象。

 

如果你不太受熱或是怕風沙的話,最好在訂前和他們確定一下交通工具。

 

到達山區

在到達後還要走些小路才到小村

在到後我們還要再走一段路才到目的地。司機要我們幫手帶香蕉和竹入去,不過路不長,所以很快就到。

在到小村後我們受到主人翁Richard的熱情歡迎。在把東西放在一張桌之上後,我們大家在左挑右揀後套上村內的特色上衣。Richard說這樣會讓大象對我們更快產生好感。

在介紹一下Elephant Jungle Sanctuary後,我們為大象做一些小食(不少人以為是給我們自己食的!),再上去見這些可愛動物。

 

餵大象時間

在上一座小山後,我們終於見到大象們了!

在一片空地和大象一家三口見面

同一天都有幾個小組,而我們首先見的是一個三口:奶奶,媽媽和兒子。

大象們對食物最感興趣

我們和大象留在空地上很久,大家不停的餵東西給它們,拍照和問一下員工有關大象的問題:

大象奶奶在懷孕,原來大象到五十多還可以懷孕,而週期為兩年。

大象兒子的爸爸只有25歲。

大象男性在青年期時會離開家庭,自己一個到森林遊蕩。不過每過幾年會回來探望。

在和大象抱抱再加一個香吻後就到午餐時間了。

 

午餐時間

elephant jungle sanctuary自助午餐,清邁,泰國
味道不錯的自助午餐

午餐是自助餐型式,有飯,麵條,雞,蛋,菜和西瓜等,味道不錯。

吃飯地方也很大,面對著河。在吃完後有幾隻狗跑了進來把我們碟上的剩菜清掉。個人覺得很好笑。可是也有些人怕狗,不過只要把碟拿走牠們就不會去你那邊。

 

和大象嬉水

大家在吃完後換上泳衣就到河內和大象一起嬉水。場面混亂比好玩多,大象們也很喜歡突然轉個身,所以要小心不要站太近。

由圖可見水不太清潔,而大家也小心的離在轉來較去的小象遠一些

如果你有戴隱形眼鏡話那要小心,因為河水沒有很清潔。最好的辦法就是戴上太陽眼鏡去擋擋。

 

泥浴

大合照~

老實說,如果你不是特別期待的話,不要去。

第一:很臭

第二:它會把你的衣服染成泥色

我的兩個朋友聰明的沒有下去,最後我和我妹的下身泳裝都要扔掉。

而員工們也會對你扔泥,所以一下去就很難迫免弄髒。

 

一天完

大家在回到河洗走身上的泥後(其實洗不走全部),我們再坐兩個半小時回到清邁市中心。

 

感想:

在Richard合照

整體來說,除了坐tuk tuk上下山,又迫又多風沙之外這個大象團真的不錯。

不過所有大象地方都離清邁至少兩個小時距離,所以很難找一個近的地方。

而我們也看得出大象們都很開心,這才是就重要的。
