I loved touching, feeding, and washing he elephants. This place is great, as they rescue elephants that have been abused. They treat them very kindly. The folks there are friendly and knowledgeable. The only drawback is that spending the whole day there was too long. A half day or 2/3 of a day would have been fine.

We booked the sunshine for elephants package. It was a fantastic day. Our guide Mr A was a great guide. Probably the best we've encountered in Asia. We were shown the video etc but the real fun started when we met our 4 elephants for the day. We got to feed them, walk them through the forest, watch them be... More

There are so many places that claim they are helping abused elephants but this place is the real deal. Any place that offers any rides are lying to you. This way you get a genuine experience seeing rescued elephants in the happiest place they could be. It was such a genuine and educational experience. Yes it is more expensive but... More

Spent an incredible 2 days at the Elephant Nature Park. Everything about it is so inspirational! It's inception, the stories if the elephants, the kind people that work there each day caring for them. Fantastic. Logistics of getting there and back were exceptional, food was heavenly and plentiful, the accommodations were lovely. We had a small group staying over, so... More

It seems like the website has changed since a few weeks ago as I didn't know there was an Elephant Nature Walk - single day visit package, so i booked the Sunshine for Elephants for my wife and I. But it was worth every penny! The photos on the website do not do it's justice as we were literally inches... More

I can't say i planned any part of my trip before coming to Thailand, the only thing i knew for sure is that i wanted to see elephants. In discussing with some friends i found out there are many elephant day excursions but very few places that treat the animals well. With that in mind i did some research on... More

One week ago, me and my friends had a wonderful day in elephant nature park. We fed and took a bath for elephants which is an unforgettable memory for us. You will never see any elephant ride or shows here. One things that you can see is elephants enjoy their freedom in this nature park. I learnt a lot about... More

Me and my boyfriend volunteered at Elephant Nature Park for a week. It was the best week of my life by far. I knew to an extent the difficulties that elephants go through but learning the raw truth behind it was heartbreaking, but it made us feel so much more passionate about the cause we were helping. Lek, the founder,... More
