My 67th birthday surprise was a stay at Vision Quest. Complete with the Pachyderm Package! I have loved elephants all of my life. Always had a dream to simply touch one. Well, I not only touched Butch I gave him a bath, fed him and got to put him to bed. I hugged him as hard as I could, walked underneath him and somehow managed to keep the tears in check. This magnificent 5 & 1/2 ton gentle giant confirmed everything I have always known about these wonderful creatures. Kelly, our guide taught us about all of the animals at Vision Quest and stayed with us the entire tour. Christie, in charge of the elephants, was there to assist in every way she could. They bring animals to your tent cabin and in the morning an elephant delivers your WONDERFUL breakfast! However, there's a catch! You can't eat your breakfast until you feed Melita! I was more than happy to oblige! You think you have heard a lion roar, guess again. I had no idea. I could write a book about this wonderful place. You simply must go and experience this wonderful animal paradise for yourself! Would I stay here again? I'd move in with the elephants if they'd let me! Please go! You won't regret it! Thank you Kelly and Christie. We WILL see you again! Kelli and Denny~
