See the Asian elephant in the wild

The Asian elephant is the largest living land animal in Asia and to see them in their natural habitat is a real privilege. India is home to 55% of the wild Asian Elephant population with an estimated population of 28,000 to 31,000. This population is largely restricted to four general areas, with the border area of Karnataka, Kerala and Tamil Nadu supporting one of the most stable populations. The area around the Kabini River attracts a rich variety of wildlife and provides one of the best spots to catch a glimpse of Indian elephants in the wild. This area is made up of several connected reserves including the Nagarhole and Bandipur National Parks in Karnataka, Madumalai in Tamil Nadu, and Wayanad in Kerala with the elephant population migrating between these forest reserves. A boat or jeep safari in one of these reserves is the best way to catch a glimpse of these majestic animals in their natural habitat.
