I have always loved elephants. Riding an elephant in the jungle or on a beach was an item on my bucket list. Thus, when I planned a trip to Thailand and Cambodia I knew I would have an opportunity to enjoy this unique experience. Like others, the thought of elephant hooks was terrible and I did my best to find... More

We went there today and it was absolutely worth the money and the time we invested in it. The staff of the Thai Elephant Home was truly acknowledged, polite and friendly all the time, during the starting briefing throughout the whole tour. Being able to find 'your' own elephant, riding bear back, having lunch with pad Thai put on a... More

This farm is an eco-farm that helps the elephants and at the same time shows you the experience to spend a day with them: feed them, riding them (without baskets!!!), washing them and also enjoying them! A great great experience with very nice people! They also gave us a dvd with pics and movies recorded during the activity and also... More

Really good trip! It was amazing to spent so much time theory these amazingly gentle and docile giants! Travelling through the forest and getting to bathe them was great. The lunch was fantastic and anything we didn't eat we gave to the elephants. Great day out!

As you can read in all the previous recommendations, spending such a long time with the elephants, bathing with them and riding them bare back is certainly a once in a lifetime experience. However, I expected to see a huge difference to all of the other touristic elephant camps. The only real difference I could see was that we were... More

The staff and the elephants were all very friendly and the trip went awesomely well. The lunch was delicious: both traditional and great. We were all very happy at the end of it, and I hope you'll have the same experience. Thanks again to the Thai Elephant Home team for this lovely journey across the magnificent landscapes that Thaïland offered.

Absolutely loved this place! Got to spend so much time with the elephants! Had spent so much time researching a place that really loved the elephants and I'm so glad that we chose to go here! The mahouts clearly loved their elephants and if they were ever naughty (mine veered away from the herd a few times), the mahouts could... More

Super fun day! My sister and I almost didn't go to this elephant home, and I'm so glad we decided to last minute. The staff was very nice and the elephants were well treated. We attended the full day elephant riding and it was the perfect amount of time. I had worried it would be too long, but it wasn't.... More

Free ride to the place with a person that spoke near perfect English. He offered to pull over if we wanted any food which I thought was nice. When we got there they gave us clothes and water. Elephants were awesome and riding bareback is the way to go. So we get to the mud pit and everything is going... More
