You should take some sugar cane from Satwa (grown in the gardens) for your elephant; another possibility is to visit the ERU ( Elephant Respond Unit ) for a more in depth look at protecting elephants and stopping crop damage. After this on to the Bambangan Reforestation Centre for a picnic lunch, then short hike into the park to the reforestation area where you will have an opportunity to plant a tree, ask questions of Park staff re the dangers of fire and see the forest.

Then you will proceed on a fascinating walk either to a game viewing platform or to Rawa Gajah, a swamp area where often Elephants are seen. Depending on the season, this area is grassland or under waist deep water. Sambar deer, wild pig, binturong and the endangered white winged wood duck have been seen here. The trail often shows scats, pug marks and tree scratching of Tigers. This makes the trip really exciting.
