We visited the Ban Kwan camp for an hours trip while we were in Ko Chang and we all enjoyed it very much, we didnt fancy the 2 hour trip with the Elephants washing in the river, so opted for the trek instead, unfortunately we didnt realise we had to wait for the others to do the river part before...

I have been to a similar elephant camp in Chang Mai 2 years ago and thus my expectations were very high. And unfortunately not met. I selected this camp after reading that this is still the most animal friendly on the island, but then I saw that they still use baskets for riding the elephants. There was little going on... More

Not like others camps on island, who has a dress up elephants on the road, in this camp you will get full experience, trekking thru the jungle. People there are relaxed, kind, happy, living in nature, animals are peaceful and satisfied. Definitely worth the visit, or in other word, place not to be missed while on Koh Chang.

My family and I spent the morning here and did the two-hour trek and swimming experience. Loved it. Quiet and peaceful as we tromped though the jungle track - although the ride was not all that comfortable it was great to be in nature with these incredible creatures. The swimming was great too, although we shared that with a small... More

This camp is slightly inland and not to be confused with Ban Chang Thai which is next to the main road near Klong Prao Beach. We did a two hour package which included jungle trekking (close to the camp), feeding the elephants and swimming/bathing with the elephants in a nearby river pool. The elephants appear to be treated well and... More

My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Ban Kwan Chang in Koh Chang. It is a very well maintained camp and the elephants look well cared for. We had a ball walking in the forest, all 3 of us on 1 elephant, which we were happy with, as I was a bit nervous being so high up. When... More

We took the extended elephant tour which included to bath with the elephants and we were not disappointed. On the contrary. We walked with our guide some 15 minutes until we arrived to a small Lake. The elephant arrived shortly after and it was clear to see that the people knew what they where doing and was fine to handle... More

We were initially apprehensive about funding a 'zoo' style attraction in Thailand following previous experiences elsewhere in the country. We therefore checked this attraction out before committing and found that it is well respected and that the animals are truly looked after and cared for. We were not disappointed. Upon arrival, its immediately clear that these animals are in a... More

Picking up from the hotel at the time as agreed. We got fruits and refreshments before riding the elephants. Nice ride. We enjoyed it very much. Except the too eager selling of the bracelets and rings. Our family already bought one item and they wanted us to buy even more from the other driver.
