Pamper a Pacyderm. An experience of a lifetime, I'm already looking forward to going back. This is more expensive than other elephant experiences in Thailand but so worth the money. They save the elephants and make sure they are well cared for. It angers me to see people riding them all over Thailand. I want to save them all! Make... More

This was a once in a life time experience. Others have given you details about pick up, the park and the time spent with elephants. On the day we went, my partner and I were somehow lucky enough to be the only two on the tour, so we trekked with two elephants all day, through the mud and jungle. It... More

Pamper a Pachyderm - do it. Don't even worry about the cost. It is worth every penny and then some. Our group agreed that it was by far the best experience of our entire SE Asia trip, and I would even dare to say the best of my (traveling) life. There is something so peaceful, exhilarating, and humbling about spending... More

We knew that we wanted to do an 'Elephant Day' and specifically chose this place for ethical reasons which it lived it up to. They're all rescued elephants, some of them fully blind, and they're given as much freedom as possible considering most of them have been domesticated. You get picked up from your hotel which was good and is... More

Where to start..., we were picked up at our hotel. Petch our tour guide was very helpful and friendly. She taught us some Thai words and was very patient and encouraging. The park was beautiful. It was amazing to walk around with the elephants. They come right up to you. They eat from your hand. You get to help them... More

My boyfriend and I volunteered here for a week and really loved it. The founder, Lek, really loves all animals and this park is a testament to that. The elephants here have been rescued from the tourism and logging industries where they suffered a lot of abuse and mistreatment (this is why you should never ride an elephant). If you... More

The work and dedication of Lek and her team is second to none. If you truly want to see how elephants are loved in Thailand, go here, volunteer for a week and you will be changed for life while being educated and working for the elephants, not them working for you! I love this place!!

After seeing how the elephants were treated at Nong Nooch I did my research and ended up here. We booked online, paid the deposit by PayPal, and pick up was as requested from our hotel. Initially a slight mix up as a marked silver van arrived but it was to pick up an overnighter. Our van followed shortly. The 40... More

We did the pamper a pachyderm day with 8 people and four elephants to share. The whole day was brilliant and fun. The elephants and staff all appear happy. The day is based on enjoying the elephants allowing them to wander along the trail feeding them bannas as you go. Lunch delicious and then a raft back. A fantastic day... More
