At Elephant Nature Park, mahout is one of the main actors in the development of an elephant.
Our elephants have painful pasts and have experienced cruelties that will shape their vision towards humans forever. While elephants suffer from poor living conditions or being forced to carry people on their backs, Save Elephant Foundation and Elephant Nature Park has the mission of educating our mahouts by teaching them positive reinforcement towards our animals. It is through reward, love and care that the mahout-elephant relationship is created in all purity.
Our mahouts dedicate their lives to these majestic beings, and they forge strong bonds based on trust.
