It is truly amazing what Lek has accomplished through this program. Not only is the park an extraordinary, once in a lifetime place to experience, but you can truly see the incredible impact that she's having on both the animals she's helping as well as the local community. We were fortunate enough to secure two spots for an overnight visit... More

I loved every minute of my visit to this park. It is just such a joy and magnificent sight to see elephants freely roaming and living the way they are supposed to be, out in the wild. Just watching how the team and the mahouts handle the elephants with such love, you know that they are not in this for... More

We spent the day amongst the elephants and it was the most wonderful day. Great lunch, wonderful staff, white water rafting (not a lot of water but what fun...splashing each other...and the little kids jumping into the raft....)...just a splendid day. Staff so willing to answer all of our questions. The wonderful dogs and cats....don't miss this...and oh yeah...please don't... More

HIGHLY recommend this tour! We had an unforgettable day at the Elephant Nature Park. Our tour guide Ole was fantastic. He was friendly, helpful, informative and funny. The elephants are treated so well and it was amazing to be a part of the great work the volunteers do. The lunch they provide was really nice. We hope we can return... More

I loved being able to hang out with rescued elephants and hearing their stories. It was such a beautiful experience that I wish I could have stayed longer!!! It was well worth it. I would do it all over again. The elephants were amazing and the best is that the park treats them with respect and love. No shows, no... More

Without a doubt....the highlight of our trip to Thailand. We pampered a pachyderm for the day,and what you pay for what you get is so much more than value for money. You get to chill with the elephants....feeding them all day, then bathing them and just walking through their environment. The only way to experience elephants in Chiang Mai....We did... More

I cannot rave anymore about how amazing this place/experience was! The friendliest staff, the most efficient guide/tour, amazing lunch buffet, and MOST importantly - the experience of being one on one with these gentle beauties was second to none! I am one of those who will judge you so hardcore if you ride an elephant. Who are we kidding? It's... More

This was one of the highlights of our trip to Thailand, it was amazing to hear the stories of many of the elephants in the park and how they ended up there. Our tour guide Mine was funny and knowledgable about most everything that we asked of him. These tours are well organized and you are constantly moving between the... More
