To spend time with these awesome creatures is one thing, but knowing that you are helping to fund their rescue is even more rewarding. This was my second visit and it was just as exciting and emotional as the first. Lek Chailert has done the most amazing job of rescuing so many elephants dogs and cats. Absolute must do when...

We had an absolute ball at the Elephant Nature Park. We were picked up from our hotel at 8am and had an enjoyable drive to the park. My kids are 2, 10.5 and 13 and they all were excited to be there. While we felt so honoured to be there in the presence of these gentle giants, it was also... More

The Elephant Nature Park is a wonderful experience that offers amazing contact time with elephant herds, including feedings and group bathing whilst maintaining animal welfare standards. 'The Overnight Programme' is world re-known and very busy all year round. The accommodation is wonderful, very spacious and beautiful and the vegetarian buffet is out of this world. Overnight Co-ordinator Apple, is a... More

What we liked about this park most of all is that it's established for ELEPHANTS and not for a sake of entertaining tourists. If you want to see a show or to ride an animal, this place is not for you! But, if you want to know more about these beautiful creatures & spend a day close to them, feeding... More

This was the highlight of our tour through Thailand. We learned about the Asia Elephant and their plight. We got to feed, touch and bathe them. We were able to walk with them and see the elephants enjoying life. There is no riding or elephant shows here! They get to be happy and free!

This was a phenomenal trip! I highly recommend it. It was included in our travel package with Globo Tours. We were picked up from our hotel and had a comfortable ride with other travelers. We learned so much about the founder of this preserve (Lek), the history, plight and efforts to preserve the lives of elephants today. Lek has done... More

This was by far the most memorable day of our trip to thailand so far. We got to feed the elephant from as close as we wanted and got to experience washing and stroking the elephants in the water. Our trip through the rainforest was also great, we could walk as slow or as fast as we wanted with the... More

We did the Pamper a Pachyderm day trip and had an amazing time. The entire day was unforgettable. We not only got to spend the entire day walking with a few of the girls, but we also got to go river rafting and spend a little time at the park. Our tour guide Mine was very accommodating, and had a... More

I'm not sure why people are writing about riding elephants under this review, but if that's what you are looking for the Elephant Nature Park is NOT for you. This park rescues elephants who are abused or mistreated and gives them a wonderful new home where they can be elephants! We spent an entire day there and it was the... More

This was the highlight of my trip so far. It was a great way to spend a day with elephants without buying into the cruel treatment often inflicted by the tourist industry. The elephants were friendly, the staff was excellent, the lunch was delicious and my memories will last a lifetime. I already want to come back to Thailand to... More
