The elephants roam free alongside a menagerie of other animals, including cats, dogs, horses, warthogs, water buffalo, and more. 

Visitors to the sanctuary have a few options, with both single-day and overnight stays available. Volunteers (aka visitors) help prepare fruits and vegetables for the elephants, as well as food for the other animals

Countless Pizzaiolo’s (pizza chefs) reside in Italy, and the quest to create the perfect pie is an honorable obsession among them. From visiting family-run wineries before kneading your dough to learning the ins and outs of gelato making (because what goes better with pizza than gelato?) the options for an Italian cooking class are endless. 
The best classes, however, have a limited size (go for private if you can!), use fresh local ingredients, and are often taught right in the chef’s own kitchen

Do you have a family full of train enthusiasts? If so, a scenic journey on the Rocky Mountaineer through Canada’s Rocky Mountains is in order! Beginning in Banff, Alberta, explore one of Canada’s most famed National Parks before heading west to Jasper, where you’ll board your train. 

Expect quintessential Canadian vistas to pass you by, all while enjoying the comforts and gourmet fare of your first-class Gold Leaf dome train. The clear glass walls and roof provide stunning views of the Continental Divide, the river valleys of the Monashee and Cariboo Mountains, and Mt. Robson, the highest peak in the Rockies. Continue west, and witness the landscape shift to more desert-like conditions, before lush vegetation reappears and you arrive in Vancouver, British Columbia.
