I honestly didn't think they'd get up it but they breezed it with us clinging on for dear life!! We then had to ride them down the road, one side had been freshly tarmaced which meant all the cars, motorbikes and trucks were getting quite close to the elephants which really scared them especially Boonya as she ...
