What an amazing time I spent at Elephantstay, this is not your everyday run of the mill come see the animals type of stay, this is REAL hands on experience, you care for your elephant in every way shape and form, and if it means breaking a finger nail and getting dirt (amongst other things) under your nails it will...

My husband and I went to Ayutthaya and after reading all about this place. I have always wanted to get up close and personal with elephants and this was the perfect way to do it. My favorite part was feeding them. Overall what an incredible experience.

This is an excellent way to pass three days. Take care of elephants and be educated about them. A great foundation for the protection of elephants in Thailand.

I went to elephant stay in April 2013. It was honestly the greatest time of my life. I am thirteen and I embraced the experience with all I had. In my opinion I don't understand how people can say they did not enjoy the experience or that the elephants were poorly treated. All I saw was unconditional love for the... More

My best friend planned this whole trip and I was only it for the ride. I didn't know much about elephants and the whole volunteer-tourism program. Before coming to this place, I actually opposed the idea of wild animals in captivity but after learning about the history and culture of Thailand and its elephants, I appreciated Elephantstay's efforts and fell...

This was an unforgettable experience for us, especially our children aged 9 and 11. We enjoyed very facet of the stay, from shovelling elephant poo, to washing and riding the elephant and playing with the babies. The huts we stayed in were very comfortable, with aircon, and our own toilet and shower. The food provided was excellent, probably the best... More

The Elephantstay programme is so much more than just a chance to care for elephants in Thailand. It is an essential contributor to helping these majestic mammals survive humanity's incursion and to return the elephant it's place in Thai society as a valued and loved member. My fiancé and I did the 3 day stay and got our first look... More

I had an unforgettable week at Elephantstay caring for elephants! It was a real hands on experience on how to take care of both adult and baby elephants from feeding to bathing we did it all. Most important of all, I truly feel that I have contributed greatly to helping the Asian elephants by staying there. The staff (Ewa, Michelle,... More
