After breakfast, take a short drive to the Mud House, a private and seductive eco-lodge surrounded by tropical greenery. You’ll stay at huts made of clay with coconut thatched roofs and outdoor showers. There’s no electricity on the premises, and cars are not allowed so bicycles are the only available mode of transport.

The best season to visit is from May to November when the elephants gather in large numbers. Return to hotel for overnight.
