I don't even know where to begin! This was the best day of my life. It was an absolutely unforgettable experience that I wish I could repeat on a daily basis. I looked into a number of elephant parks before choosing Patara, and honestly: look no further! The elephants are incredibly well cared for and loved. The staff is fantastic.... More

My family group of 8 people (ages 13 to 52) and a 6 week old baby had an unforgetable day with the Patara Elephant Farm. I did a lot of reading up about elephant parks before we went and chose this one. Definitely a great place to go and the right one as far as their care and love of... More

Based on others' reviews, we chose Patara for our family's elephant excursion. It is expensive - but even even after buying six tickets, I feel as though it was money well spent. This will certainly be the highlight of our Thailand trip. I really appreciated the owner's common-sense conservation philosophy and you can tell that everyone that works there truly... More

I spent much time researching the many elephant parks in Chiangmai before I made the decision to go with Patara. My husband and I are so glad we spent a half day with this company at their beautiful mountain location 45 minutes away from Old Town Chiangmai. The company has a van to pick you up from your hotel and... More

Patara is amazing! The day I spent there was hands down one of the coolest days I've had in a long time. The farm, its staff and obviously its elephants are all truly beautiful and amazing. My day was spent getting to learn about and hang out with these incredible creatures, and I had my own elephant that I worked... More

22nd July picked up at our hotel for what was an experience of a lifetime. If you can do this as you will have memories to treasure and talk about. I picked this particular elephant farm as they are all about repatriation and well being of the elephants. The men who look after the elephants spend nearly all there time... More

Me and my wife had a truly amazing time. This is a place that cares for the animals and you can see it when you go. You should definitely go if you're in Chiang Mai. THIS IS A MUST.

Title says it all, elephants treated very well, friendly and knowledgeable staff, more than worth the price. Pictures and video are included.

What an amazing experience, I had the opportunity to do this on my birthday and this is going to be one hard birthday to beat. I would recommend this to anyone visiting the area. This one does stand out from all the others and you can tell that the welfare of the animals is their upmost priority. We were included... More
