You can educate them about the tropical nature on the island and for most children this might be the first time they’ve seen an elephant up close, how very exciting! Take them for a walk with an elephant and they’ll love you forever.
There are many companies offering boat trips around the island or you can ask at your resort and they will more than likely be able to arrange this for you and your family.
