What's Been Happening..
Due to the heat I didn't venture out on foot much. We traveled by tuk tuk (taxi) but with 7 of us squashed in it, it wasn't very comfortable. Hiring a van with air conditioning and more seat space was certainly the way to go. For NZ$41 you could hire a van for the whole day of which the driver would drive you to where you wanted to go and would wait for your return. Now that's what I call service!
The highlight of our trip was the elephant safari where we not only got to ride them but we were also given the opportunity to climb down off the seat and onto it's neck. After the ride we watched as they were watered down and then we rewarded them by feeding them bunches of banana's. We then were entertained by a baby elephant that danced and played the harmonica. Here are a few pics from our trip.
