The elephant camp is inland and the elephants appeared well cared for. Highlight was the swimming with elephants in a watering hole. It a good idea to take some insect repellent... read more

A fabulous experience! The elephants seemed to be well cared for and fed well. They could feed as we trekked and didn't seem to be ill treated. They have a variety of packages. We opted for the 30min jungle trek which cost us 400baht per adult, which is approximately £8. Not the cheapest thing to do in Thailand but a... More

The elephants appear to be well cared for and what stood out is the fact they were not in concrete stables on the roadside like so many others. The mahouts that took our party of 15 were friendly and knowledgeable and took fantastic photos for us during the trip. I would def recommend doing the swimming or cleaning as that... More

Having read other reviews on here is was a bit hesitant, but having been I can honestly say it was a most spectacular thing to do. A great experience to be had, I never saw any cruelty or the elephants being forced in to doing anything, and as for swimming with them it was unbelievable. All in all a fantastic... More

Not a nice experience - just pay, don´t ask anything, sit and be quiet. For the money spent definitely not good value. Business first, experience last.

Had mixed feelings about this trip. The elephants didn't look very happy, though they were defeintly better taken care of than some of the other places I have seen Elephant rides offered. We rode the elephants into the water but didn't swim with them....the water had a lot of elephant dung in it anyways. Overall, it was nice to ride... More

A good priced Elephant ride, we had the 1 hour trip with a swim at the end and it was fantastic, especially the swim and to feed the elephants at the end. A must see attraction well worth the visit while we stayed on the island. Would definitely recommend to anyone who loves elephants.
