The elephant ride and then feeding the baby tiger was a lot of fun. Even better than I expected it to be. Everything went well.
This trip is worth doing as an introduction to elephant trekking - its not out in the "wild" as such but the elephants are wonderful as are their drivers. You get some nice refreshment at the end as well. Certainly i will do a longer trek next time - whetted my appetite for this activity.
A nice and long-lasting walk in the bush, nice and kind guide, a bit far away from Pattaya - To be done again !
This trek was everything it was advertised as. We really enjoyed the experience and learned quite about elephants.
I felt the Elephant trek although worth doing was very rushed, we only booked the trek alone and we were basically rushed straight onto the elephant and onto the trek without any chance of taking our own pics of each other on the elephant, the same thing at the end, it was very busy and went like a production line. The trek itself was good but only lasted half an hour then we were rushed out with little time to look around before being taken back to our hotel. Would maybe have benefited from doing the full tour.
Was fun, but underdeveloped. We were supposed to have an English speaking tour guide, but in fact, we were picked up from the hotel by a driver, who didn't speak much English and whisked off to the location. Then ushered into the elephant park. The trek itself was great! Enjoyed every moment of it.
Riding an Elephant was interesting however you basically walked around the very small neighborhood where the employees live who work at the park. There was no real information shared about the area or Elephants. I was also not happy with the conditions that i saw the Elephants living in or the way they were treated. It was very busy with about a dozen full tour buses the time we were there.
