The Heritage Hot Spring at the head of Kamshiko River, is a natural elephant paradise. The ready-made warm salty spring water is the “salt lick” where over 200 litres is taken on board in one drink.

In nature’s greatest symbiosis and co-existence, the elephants feed on the move, as birds perched for a ride on the back; accompanying egrets match along in comfort, feeding on the insects disturbed by the heavy feet. A kaleidoscope of butterflies feed on the salty moisture in the elephant dropping, before the dung beetle completes the re-cycling back to the earth, thus concluding the re-cycling of 200-600lbs eaten daily.
