Indonesia - Elephant Patrol Of Sumatra This is the place to come if you want a truly exclusive and unique experience combining rainforest exploration with camping and above all with riding elephants.
It is called the Elephant Jungle Patrol for a reason. Your participation has a meaning. The ride functions as a patrol keeping illegal loggers away. It is arranged jointly by local communities, the national park authorities, and local and International NGO’s. All profits are used for community development, social programs and nature conservation. The elephants originate from areas where human encroachment on elephant land has caused conflicts, causing the wild elephants to loose their habitat and forcing the authorities to round them up and move them to government camps. The elephants are among the few to have been trained to carry people. They are not just used for tourists but do a valuable job patrolling and protecting their own remaining habitat.
