In a departure from offering elephant rides to tourists, Lek has successfully created a more humane alternative. Visitors can walk through the preserves and observe elephants roaming freely in their natural habitat. “Both local and foreign visitors will be able to learn about and enjoy seeing happy and relaxed elephants at our project. It’s a win-win for everyone,” Lek said.
