This was one of the highlights of our honeymoon. FYI: We booked it though our hotel the Sheraton Krabi Resort so we had transportation arranged and lunch after. I am not sure why there are any negative reviews for this tour. The elephants followed our guides around like puppies and the guides did not use bull hooks at all. Caring... More

Just visited today, April 12, metal hooks were most definitely used. I saw a man repeatedly hitting one of the elephants who was chained up and simply eating the palm leaves it was given. I saw no reason for it to be "disciplined". I wouldn't recommend. I found it very sad.

We visited last week and I have to wonder about the two previous very negative reviews - note they are by people with only this one Trip Advisor review each. We too were concerned by reports that in some tours the elephants are mistreated, but saw no signs of this here. Our guide was young and used just a short... More

Absolutely horrible. VERY rude people. Waaaay overpriced. We paid for 1 hour treking and bathing experience. We were on the elephant for maybe 30 mins not even. The "Bathing" we were only allowed to watch until we told them we paid to be in the water with them. All the workers seem like they hate their job because they are... More

This place advertised as animal lovers!! But far from it!! They use of the long sticks with sharp metal hooks on the ends are only meant to be used as a last resort should an elephant go to charge at someone or threaten te lives of people. However due to inexperienced staff all the guides used the hooks as a... More

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
