I looooooove elephants. They are probably my favorite animal species on planet earth. I clearly remember the purest joy I felt as a child, visiting the Central Park Zoo and feeding them peanuts through the bars of their pen. As an adult, I STRONGLY appose keeping elephants in zoos as the weight on their joints cannot handle the confinement, but as a kid, I did not know any better and visiting them was one of my favorite things to do growing up in NYC. Located in Senmonorom, in the Mondulkiri Province of Cambodia, this elephant sanctuary offers day trips, jungle trekking trips and a 2 day, 1 night tour where you get to stay with an indigenous family and completely immerse yourself in the local culture and cuisine. The cost of the overnight is an $80 donation to the sanctuary, so that is for sure the route I will take when I visit.
