More than two years ago, Intrepid Group became the first global tour operator to stop offering elephant rides on our trips. Since then, the feedback from our travellers has been overwhelmingly positive.

But we understand people still want to want to witness these magnificent creatures during their travels, and there are still many ways to have a responsible wildlife experience on holiday.

That’s why we are proud to support this new guide book from Horizon Guides,  which combines advice and first-person experiences from top ethical tourism experts and writers.


  • Practical tips on how to choose an ethical experience with elephants
  • The true cost of a close-up elephant encounter
  • What is a Mahout? The human side of elephant husbandry
  • Three heart-warming elephant rescue stories
