Felt sorry for the elephants

They let you ride on elephants for more than 2 hrs, trekking in a small area of the woods and crossing small streams. The elephants have drive-masters to guide them, who keep... read more

Read a lot of research on current elephant camps and shows in Thailand and this by far seemed the best unless of Course you visit Chang Mai and go to a sanctuary. This is an elephant camp Nosey parkers about 15min drive from ao nang beach. We were picked up by the camp owner himself really polite and friendly Thai... More

We were part of a group and did this in the afternoon. The guys who managed the elephants were fun and let us manage these animals and take photos for us. It was in a cool area with lots of trees and a large stream and there were drinks if you need them. It was fun and entertaining as they... More

Some friends of ours recommended Nosey, and after reading more about the place (and other less rated elephant camps) on Trip Advisor, we decided to give it a try. Many of the tourist offices in Ao Nang provides elephant rides, but since we only wanted to go to Nosey (due to the bad reputation of the others), we wanted to... More

They let you ride on elephants for more than 2 hrs, trekking in a small area of the woods and crossing small streams. The elephants have drive-masters to guide them, who keep poking the poor animals with a sharp tool, this can be quite painful to watch. The jungle is non-threatening, so you might as well relax and enjoy the... More

I spent my birthday doing 1-hour of elephant trekking in the rubber plantation somewhere in Krabi. We booked the trip through our resort, Sheraton Krabi Beach Resort (THB800 per pax) and the Nosey Parker Elephant Farm's operator picked us up at 1pm from the resort and it was a short 10 minutes drive away. We were introduced to our elephant,... More

we had a great time riding and feeding the elephants, but there are better places to go. We had a long wait, and then just a short ride in a small area. Other places really give you more interaction with the elephants.

Both my wife and I carefully selected Nosey Parker, after hearing bad reviews of others in the area. We actually went there to check it out before booking. We trekked for about 2 hours, but we didn't go far and the elephants directed the pace. when we returned to the camp we fed them bananas which the elephants took from... More

This is not the way elephants should be treated! How anyway can say that they enjoyed themselves is beyond me. These elephants are clearly frightened of their trainers and I can see why! Elephants were not created for tourists to ride on them and think it's marvellous! Get out of your bubble because you're on holiday and look how badly... More
