Have just been to this camp today overall great experience, elephants seemed to be treated well and the mahouts only controlled them by voice only not used the blunt tools at all! The other camp we went to in the area used them a lot more! Mahouts were friendly and took loads of photos for us and let me and... More

We went here because I've read so many reviews about elephants being hit with the hooks or beaten but the reviews for nosey parker seemed good. The elephants all looked in good condition and none (I saw) had bloody cuts or scars like I've read about other places! The mahoot (Bow) that took us seemed to really care about his... More

We loved the Elephant camp, the Elephants were really well looked after, the handlers were very knowledgeable and we have a really lovely day. Great value for money.

How fun was this!!! We arrived and were warmly greeted and in. 5 minutes we were boarding our elephant! It was exhilarating and something I've never done before .After 20 minutes the handler asked if we wanted to ride on her shoulders. My husband slid down and rode on her shoulders like that the rest of the trip.the handler took... More

I don't know exactly if the elephants were mistreated to me they seem they were not .it was a very short walk through the back of the camp .I think 30 minutes was enough that way the elephants are not too overworked .I must admit it was very scary experience since it was my first the riding one. The only... More

Chose this company because they mentioned care/respect for their elephants and from the little I saw I think (and hope!) this is accurate. These tours are so easy to organise from your hotel - our tour agent made the arrangements and we were picked up from the lobby...only about a 15 minute drive from Ao Nang. As with most things,...

The usual stuff: elephants with a mahout guy sitting on it's head giving the big animal orders using his feet and mohout hook. Seat on the elephant's back with room for two passengers. OK enough (the children loved it) if you fancy a elephant ride, but rather shabby surroundings.

The Elephant riding was a pleasant experience, safety was ok, and the guides was nice and friendly. The backside of the tour is at the end where every one is Truong to sell you something. We chose this place because et was only a 15 min. drive from Sofitel where we stayed - and we got what we came for...the... More

Ignore the bad reviews. For Thailand standards these elephants are treated like kings. Each elephant is allowed to rest and bathe after every walk. There is ample shade and food for each animal and the attitude of the place seems very good compared to others I have seen around the world. Go see for yourself. Highly recommend.

From the pictures you can get the opinion, that you ride with the elephants in the jungle, in a river etc.... The truth is that you pay 800 baths: - the elephant walks cross a small road to a nearby "forests" and walks through a muddy soil 10 minutes or stands motionless when the mahutis talks to each other or...
