... the case. We are introduced to a large, 32 year old female named Bima by her mahout, Rajiv, and taken on a twenty minute trek through the jungle on her back. I sit at the front and feel the breeze of her ears waft over my splayed legs whenever she flaps them. Coman opts to sit side-saddle behind me, which is a wise move as when we dismount I feel like I’ve been doing the splits. Thank God for all my recent yoga!

... side but is actually as cheap as the little local places in town and a lot nicer.
The final adventure of the day was a night jungle walk. We set off after the sun had gone down at 7pm for the 3 hour walk with the official wardens on their patrol. There were only 5 of us, and it was equally nerve-wracking (you just have no idea what’s lurking where) and incredibly relaxing - you’ve literally got the whole jungle to yourself, which feels ...
