A skilled mahout guides his elephant with the softest commands and light touches behind the ear. This comes from years of training to build an understanding between the elephant and his master.

The Anantara Mahout Training course is the original, and still the best in Asia, specifically designed to give guests an understanding of these incredible creatures, something that cannot be gained from sitting in a saddle.

Learn the basic commands and help take your elephant for a long walk in the forest. End with a splash taking your elephant into the water for a bath and watch them play.
