I did a self-drive through Addo Elephant Park, and it really made me appreciate the work of game lodge rangers. You can't believe how difficult it is to drive while looking for animals! Addo Elephant is near Port Elizabeth in South Africa.
Elephant Nature Park, Chiang Mai, Thailand - a haven for elephants rescued from abusive situations. If you are interested in ethical travel, you may wish to research the elephant situation in Thailand before deciding to ride one.
