Why the elephant caves are called elephant caves? Those giants used to come to the rocks which are very rich for calcium, they hit the rocks with their tusks and eat the piece sand it helps the elephants to receive enough minerals and to make their bones very strong. The big holes are still there and that is why people call this place“elephant caves.”
You will be able to come very close, even step inside the caves and see signs from tusks.
There is a small Endoro River near the caves, and the elder elephants pick this place as a point to spend their old age and finally pass away so some call this an elephant burial grounds as well.
After caves you will track to the Endoro waterfall –a great spot to observe the view of Karatu town and take some unforgettable pictures.
