Our Elephants !

Each of the elephants in KECV has different daily schedule. Mahouts bath their elephant about 6-7 times a day, and the bath frequency is vary from the weather. Elephant’s ear can regulate their temperature, but that isn’t enough, so they need water to help them to cool down during hot weather.  Every evening, the elephants will be released to play in the 300 acres jungle with a controlled situation.
