World Elephant Day Quiz : Win a One-Week Vacation

Karma Group has always had a special relationship with elephants – from our flagship resort in Goa being named ‘Haathi Mahal’ ( translated: Elephant Palace ) to Lord Ganesha being given a prominent position in all our resorts in India. In fact, our Chairman’s fondness of Lord Ganesha is an open secret. We’re therefore excited to celebrate ‘World Elephant Day’! A day when individuals and organisations rally together to give voice to issues threatening elephants. Dive into this week’s quiz to test your knowledge on these magnificent creatures.


The winner will win a one-week holiday at one of Karma Group’s resorts ( excluding Karma Estates). Winner will be announced on 24 Aug across all Karma Group and Karma Odyssey social media channels.
