Just an absolutely fabulous experience. One of the best of my life. We had an amazing group, a fun guide, and exposure to all aspects of the elephants' life. It was a dream. The lunch was delicious and there was plenty, and we got to get in the river and help bathe a lady elephant shortly afterwards. I cannot say... More

The Elephant Nature Park, created as a sanctuary for Asian elephants by Thai superwoman Lek Chailert, is an experience not to be missed if you love animals. I did hours of research on elephant attractions in Thailand before choosing ENP. I went feeling confident that the elephants' welfare is the top priority & left assured 100% that it is. The... More

I was here because i only wanted to go to a place where the animals were taken off very good. I support this place because of the good work done here but also because it was just so great to be so near to these animals. Loved it so much! Be considerate. Go here or donate

We took a tour package and one of the highlights was the elephant show. We were awed by the intelligence and obedient giants in the various acts they could perform. The elephants turning into artists was the greatest achievement for thailand! They painted beautiful artwork some sold at veey good price😍 we were really inspired to see their shows and... More

My partner and I did the one night overnight stay. We were picked up from our hotel with the trip about 1 1/2 to get there. On arrival you get to fed the elephants and walk around the park. At elephant nature park there is no riding as most of the animals have been rescued from the tourist trades and... More

Amazing day watching elephants being their happy selves, bathing them, feeding them, running out of the way a few times! A cruelty-free way to interact with the eles, many of which have been abused in their past but now get to live the rest of their lives out at this freedom sanctuary

My visit to Elephant Nature Park was the highlight of my time in northern Thailand. The owners and guides are friendly and competent. The experience is magical - being able to feed and walk alongside elephants. The day tour supports a good cause, and is ethical in that nobody rides the elephants. The only downside is how many people in... More

When trying to find an elephant tour to book we found it pretty hard as we had heard lots of bad rumours and horror stories about mistreated elephants, so when we came across elephant nature park we we're sold instantaneously. It is a sanctuary and rescue centre for ex worker and performer elephants, who we're personally saved by the founder... More

You can see that the elephants are looked after in this nature park. You get to feed them, stroke them and wash them through out the day. The guide we had, had only been working for the company for 2 weeks and her English was very limited. She seemed to get very mixed up with the names of the elephants... More
