I could not speak more highly of Patara Elepant Farm. My partner and I had the most incredible day learning all about our elephants and his to care for them. We were also given pictures and videos for free at the end by the photographer there that day which was a lovely touch. By the end of the day I... More

I think the reviews on trip advisor speak for themselves!! The day was fantastic and the memories gained will stay with me forever!! Feeding, washing and riding the elephant was a truly magical experience! Yes it's a little unnerving at times, but you soon relax into it and the magic takes over! The trek on the elephant is a little... More

This was truly a special an incredible experience! Having your own elephant for most of the day is something I will never forget. Washing it, feeding it, playing with it and riding on its back was utterly awesome! The trainers really care about these creatures and you can tell as not a single one of their elephants are aggressive. All... More

I cannot describe how amazing my day with them was. The care they give and the love they share for all the elephants there is quite amazing, and I could totally learn a lot more about them. The experience is amazing, I hope I have the opportunity to go there again!

We had the best day at Patara Elephant Farm. The day started with an introduction to the farm policies, elephant facts ,health and conservation information. We were then transported a few mins away where we met the elephant pack and were introduced to our own personal elephant for the rest of day. We learnt some basic commands, fed our elephants,...

We were recommended Patara Elephant Farm from a friend who traveled to Thailand in 2014 - we couldn't have been more pleased with our experience. After being picked up at our hotel/dropped off at the farm, we were greeted by a few elephants and met the owner of the farm who walked us through the farm's mission and what our... More

Before going to Patara I did a lot of research as I did not want to associate myself with any organisation that wasn't ethical. I was nervous and apprehensive about going incase when I got there I discovered that it wasn't as it should have been. In fact it was just fabulous, I am reduced to tears when I think... More

Thank you so much to Patara for a truly incredible day that we will never forget! Our group was just 4 in total with about 10 elephants so we really got a very intimate experience with these phenomenal animals. The guides obviously really care very much for the elephants and their babies which is wonderful to see and experience. We... More

My friend and I splurged a little to go to Patara, and it was well worth it! It's apparent that the elephants are treated well, which is not always the case. If you go to Patara you will get to feed, wash, and play with your elephant for an entire day. It's a completely different experience when you're not just... More

Your picked up at your hotels and brought to the Patar Elephant farm, you began to get excited once you see guys riding bare back on the elephants once to start to get close to farm along the rode in. Once there, we saw a baby elephant feeding with her mother long with a few younger elephants and their mother's.... More
