Activities at Serenity Kanam:

A Day with the elephant - While staying the comfort of this charming boutique hotel, which is amidst the rubber plantations between Cochin and Thekkady, your day with an elephant will begin after breakfast. You will be taken to meet the female Elephant Lakshmi and her mahout who both live close by (1 ½ miles away). Initially you will be provided with a bunch of bananas to feed her as this works as a good introduction / ice-breaking method between you and Lakshmi. She is a wonderful, tamed elephant who used to work for a circus before being rescued by her present mahout, and she now earns her living undertaking farm and forest activities.

The mahout gives you an introduction to the command and communication which will help you to interact with Lakshmi better. After you have become acquainted with Lakshmi, you may go out and spend a few hours riding around the beautiful surroundings of Kanam Estate and the local countryside. After a while on elephant back, you will be taken to one of the nearby farm nearby farms, which are teeming with rubber, banana, papaya, pepper, coffee, pineapple and cocoa plantations. You may tour these plantations either on foot or riding Lakshmi. Later you if you wish you can give her a bath and also get an Elephant shower.

Bathing the Elephants is an amazing experience with Lakshmi enjoying the massage with the brush. Each one of you will be allowed to take time and bathe Lakshmi. Thereafter Lakshmi will give you a shower with water from her trunk one by one. You will be all wet but absolutely thrilled.

  • The driver Krishna was outstanding, polite, well-dressed and very patient. The road conditions were hazardous at times, but he negotiated them very capably. This is the second time I have used your company and I am extremely satisfied with your service. I will continue to recommend your company to colleagues visiting India and will be in touch for my next trip.......said Randy Bindra, USA travelled through us from 04 Mar. to 09 Mar. 2013
  • We would like to thank you and your colleagues for a very well organised three week holiday. We thoroughly enjoyed it and everything worked very well. The overnight on the houseboat was a wonderful experience, it was such a change from being on the busy road, and to have the peace, silence and tranquillity for nearly 24 hours was indeed very nice. So, we can also recommend that and the two crew were very good indeed, and we thoroughly enjoyed the meals they provided for us. It was really good experience..........said Ketty Tomes, UK travelled through us from 28 Jan. to 17 Feb. 2013
  • Thank you very much for great trip in India. My 4th trip to India has made that I’m more addicted to India than I was before (I thought that I couldn’t be more addicted but I was wrong). I tell only positive things to all my friends about my trip and TSI. Maybe my girl friend decides to visit South India with 3 other girls. I also look forward to visit Ladakh and Kashmir.........said Robert, Poland travelled through us from 29 Jan. to 13 Feb. 2013
  • Dear Manoj,
    Everyone is safely home again after our spice discovery tour, and we can definitely consider it one of our successes. Once again you won everyone’s hearts with your thoughtfulness and thoroughness in all our activities. I don’t know how we would have coped with the flight cancellations between Udaipur and Madurai if you had not been there to sort it out! ..............said Liz and Ian, Australia travelled through us from 13 Jan. to 29 Jan. 2013
  • Dear Manoj,
    Our tour of your wonderful country was fantastic. I was returning, after 36 years, but it was Helen’s first time and she loved every minute of the amazing journey. Our precious eighteen days seemed to stretch—there was so much to see and do! Each night we went to bed tired, and occasionally exhausted. And so, we really appreciated the extra effort made by all the Indian hotels to provide us with additional length in our double beds. Thanks you for making those arrangements. We were always very comfortable at night so we woke up refreshed, ready to enjoy the delights of the next day.........said Helen & Richard Walker, Australia travelled through us from 13 Jan. to 29 Jan. 2013
  • We just want to thank for the amazing service provided to us. We are very happy and impressed with all assistance and support you gave us during the whole trip......said Manha Cleusa, Brazil travelled through us from 22 Oct. to 02 Nov. 2012
  • We have enjoyed our trip to India and will certainly recommend TSI to any friends who wish to visit your beautiful country.....Dr. Chanvit, Thailand travelled through us from 11 Feb. to 20 Feb. 2012
