I heard about this amazing place from a friend whom volunteered there for a month. It's good to know that there are places like this one after seeing what's done to the poor elephants at all the elephant shows. I think tourist should avoid going to elephant shows and rides and spend a day at this elephant farm. Very nice... More

Elephant Nature Park had a convenient location for booking tours in Chiang Mai. We were provided information on our day tour (what to pack, what to expect.) The driver and tour guide were very punctual. We watched a film on our ride to the park which educated us about the current elephant practices in Thailand. Once we arrived, our tour... More

The most amazing experience and day I had my entire time traveling through Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam and Laos. Not only do you experience and play with the elephants but you really learn and understand the dire need to help and spread awareness. Lek is one of the most amazing women in the world. BEWARE: lots of hostels in chiang mai... More

This place is amazing.... I am absolutely in love!!! They treat their elephants with so much love and compassion. The elephants look so happy! They really take the time to teach you about the elephants. They are all about ethical treatment of elephants and they never use violence toward them... I will definitely be returning if I ever come back... More

The Elephant park is incredible, I would recommend it to anyone. We did the 2days and 1 night package, we were abit apprehensive about what the accommodation would be like but it was very nice we overlooked the river and the room was a good size. The food was good and there was plenty to go round. The work that... More

What an inspiring place and an incredible day. The day was well planned from the beginning to end - they pick you up (and drop you off) at your hotel and the ride is very smooth to the nature park. Upon arrival you are able to spend the entire day with the elephants and other animals - from feeding them,... More

Personally I don't like paying for things where the animals are made to do things for you eg.Take you riding/circus performances where inevitably they would have had a lot of disciplining through one tactic or another most of which I can guarantee would have been under questionable methods. This park on the other hand allows you get to wash them,... More

The story of this park is incredible and the opportunity to meet with the woman who started it was such a treat. You will not ride elephants or watch them paint. You get to spend quality time pampering them with plenty of contact and will leave with the understanding of the importance of these type of places. If you take... More
