Be transported into the heart of the Burmese rainforest for a rare up-close glimpse at the gentle and intelligent elephants. Here, you can see the world’s largest land animals at work and at play with their riders, the mahouts.
Macho Beasts at Work
Be amazed by the elephants’ incredible feats of strength; these gargantuan beasts can lift and push logs the weight of two grown men! See how they marry intelligence and might to complete herculean tasks of moving giant logs.
Never too Big to Play
And what awesome elephant show doesn’t have amazing tricks in the trunk? Watch these playful giants as they play dead, ‘steal’ food, and demonstrate their ability to spray far and wide. Take cover if you plan to take the front and centre seats!
The show ends with a token feeding session, so be sure to stick around for some trunk-touching fun! SOURCE.
Another highlight in our trip to Singapore Zoo is the Elephants at Work and Play Show. My hats off to the trainers who trained the elephants very well. I would say, it was a good and fun show! The kids had fun!
There were a few rain showers while we were watching, good thing they didn’t stop the show!
You can watch the Elephants at Work and Play Show at the Elephants of Asia daily at 11.30am and 3.30pm. This show is weather permitting.
I highly recommend it especially for the kids who love animals. Elephants at Work and Play was a wondeful and funny show! ♥
