Elephant Back Riding (no children under eight years old may sit on or ride elephants)PLEASE NOTE THIS IS AN EXTRA SERVICE AND CAN ONLY BE ADDED UPON ARRIVAL AT RECEPTION ON THE DAY.
I am aware that elephant back riding is conducted without saddles and is offered for the purposes of enhancing and understanding of the elephants and how they move as opposed to offering a safari experience. I realize that sitting on the back of an elephant will cause my legs to be spread wide apart which may cause discomfort and that I will be sitting high above ground and that there is a risk of falling. I understand that there is a rocking motion that occurs should the elephant stand up from lying down or sit down from standing up and I need to be aware that I must hold tightly to the handler and obey his instructions throughout the ride.
Medical declaration for Elephant Back Riding
In the event that I elect to participate in an elephant ride, I hereby declare that I am fit and in good health; am not pregnant; have not had neck, spinal, back, hip, knee or pelvic surgery; do not have a pre-existing spinal, back, hip or pelvic condition/injury; do not have osteoporosis; epilepsy or any other condition which may be adversely affected by participating in an elephant ride. I further declare that I am prepared to act responsibly at all times.
