Elephants are one of the most intelligent and endearing animals in the world and in many parts of Southern Asia the Asiatic elephant is an important part of culture as a reverred symbol of the Hindu God Ganesh (the god of prosperity and good fortune) and also as a working tool which has helped to carve out some of India and Nepals’ greatest monuments in the past. As a result the Asiatic elephant holds a special place in the hearts of many people here and because of this the elephant sanctuary and breeding centre in Chitwan has been set up. This is a great way to get close to elephants and see the strong bond between the mother and calves and also to get close to the young elephants as they wander playfully around the breeding centre under the watchful eye of the rangers and mahouts. If you would like to see these elephants then you can as we visit this breeding centre as part of our Chitwan Jungle Safari which takes in the best Tiger Watching in Nepal.

The above video shows the playful side of the elephant calves and shows how much they enjoy the interaction with people.
