Worth the trip, although is a long drive there. Thanks Reno

4 star rating: Recommended March 2014

A very well organised and interesting tour. We were able to get close to the elephants and, although we did not go into the river to wash the elephants, we thoroughly enjoyed watching the antics of those who did. The guide was friendly and informative and the sanctuary was well run. They could do with a new copy of the film. Also could have done without the visit to the pewter factory, although our guide was at pains to point out that we should not feel pressured to buy.
