beautiful, but people still have sticks and sometimes they kick the elephants :
What a great day and experience. We were lucky that we were the first people there and had 20 elephants to feed. Our guide, Woody, was great. I can highly recommend this trip.
This tour was both entertaining and informative. Our tour guide was deeply passionate about these animals and we got a very good understanding about the situation of elephants in Thailand and why these types of camps are needed. The whole tour revolved around the elephants' daily schedule of eating, walking and bathing and we got to participate hands-on in each of these activities. The elephants are only ridden bare-back and we got very clear instructions on how to direct them. Besides that, the mahouts are always stay near the elephant so the situation is under control. Although the tour is priced more than other tours, all the money goes towards the elephants so I would do it again anytime.
Unfortunately we also had some hiccups in the morning with the departure time. I would recommend to confirm departure time couple of days before and not the the evening before the tour, since there might be confusions that need to be clarified.
Highlight our our 10-day tour of Thailand.
Efficient pick up and drop off at the hotel.
Knowledgable, friendly and fun guide with perfect English.
You feed, ride and wash the elephant while learning about them and the Park.
They train you on how to mount and dismount an elephant and proper riding stance.
Tips. They provide top and bottom with change rooms and showers along with towels. I recommend wearing your bathing suit underneath your Park cloths as you get into the water with the elephants. Wear shoes that fasten on or don't wear shoes when riding if they slip off easily. Great photographer on sight well worth the 900 baht for the memorable photos taken and saves your worrying about your camera.
Well worth the cost for this once in a lifetime experience. So fun
Tour as described on your Viator site. Spent a whole day, feeding, riding and washing the elephants. Fabulous experience.
Great experience. They treat the elephants in the best possible way. We had the opportunity to feed the elephants, ride them bareback as well as bathe them at the end of the ride. I took my two girls 12 and 14 and it was perfect for kids that age.
Awesome experience taking care of elephants rescued from all over Thailand. Feed them, learn basic riding commands, ride bareback, and then clean the elephants. Great conservation efforts. Our guide was named Best, he was great. Lunch included. Maybe the best Pad Thai I ever had, overall amazing experience.
Highly recommend this elephant park and experience. Wonderful day filled with people who really help you understand the elephants and truly care about their well being!
Excellent opportunity to interact with elephants. A lot of fun!
What an amazing day!!
Chi , our guide was friendly, very informative , and spoke great english ! Everyone one at the camp was super nice and loved being close with the elephants- All of the mahouts and tour guides care about the elephants and making your day unforgettable!
