    Incredible day from start to finish. Highlights were the endless wonderful views from the jeep, bathing in a very private and stunning part of a river, and of course seeing almost 20 elephants coming to their watering hole at Anakulam. I will never forget this experience and we have Mani to thank for making it so great. He was patient and knowledgable about all the different fruits and spices that grow in the area - we learned a lot! Don’t hesitate to book this tour, worth every penny.

  • Casey Silbernagel

    An absolutely wonderful tour. Ganesh raja was a fantastic guide; very knowledgeable and able to point out the tiny things (like local flora and fauna) as well as knowing just when the wild elephants would appear and why they came to that exact spot.

  • Tobias Merz

    We had a wonderful day with our fantastic driver Suresh. He drove us very well & safely to several sights and we could hop off and walk for parts when we wanted to enjoy the landscapes and villages closer than just drive by. The highlight was definitely seeing the elephants in the late afternoon and the stop where he showed us the rubber trees & how the rubber is pressed with old machines. We highly recommend this trip with Suresh!
