On a river, alongside a mountain, and within a temple, Thailand wraps its marvels around you in an embrace of magic. The way its spices taste, the smell of its lush jungles, the way the water flows over the cracked skin of an elephant as she bathes…
Your feet will take you from mountain trail to a temple hidden amid the jungle, reminding you of the untapped wonder that still exists in this world.
Each day you will experience Thailand anew. By boat, trek, kayak, bamboo raft and bike, your senses will tingle at the quiet beauty of this landscape’s every angle. Flowing along the rapids of the Taeng River, luxuriating in a traditional Thai massage, purchasing fresh lemongrass from a bustling local market, and gently cycling past rolling hills of rice paddies and fruit orchards will delight your senses.
These moments are deepened by the Wild Women family at your side and the string of faces that dot your Thailand days. Not only will the elephants swell your heart with love for this earth, so too will the Hillside Villagers that welcome you into their homes and share their culture, making you feel as though you are old friends finding each other again.
You will meet new friends, the Asian elephants, in the jungle and in a rescue sanctuary, inviting you to learn more about the life of these majestic animals and to appreciate their gentle, wise ways. Your heart will be warmed knowing that you are helping to protect these threatened animals and as you feed and bathe them, you know that your time in Thailand is giving back to this wonderful country that has touched your heart.
