Great 2hr experience we chose to swim with the elephants as we thought they would enjoy the water as much as we did . Would have like to have seen the elephants with a bit more freedom at the centre as they looked very hot and bored but we noticed they weren't kept there over night . There are other... More

If you don't want to ride the elephants you can just go and feed them. For B100 you can feed the mum and her very cute little baby and the mum says thank you with her trunk. You also have the option of a few different rides Our kids did the water one but they didn't exactly swim with the... More

Though it sounded fun, once I was on the elephant, I found it pretty risky. We took a 2 hour package (1,200 Bhat each for adults / free for children less than 4) which includes ride through the forest and swimming with the animal in the natural pond - not the right choice! The seat on which you are suppose... More

We stumbled upon this camp by accident but we're really glad we did. They have a very small and very adorable baby elephant! We first popped in just to feed the elephants (baby elephant enjoys cucumber) and went back each day we passed until we finally undertook a tour. We went for the most expensive option for a walk +...

TIP: rent a motorbike and ride there yourself! You'll be saving 400 Baht! This was the best camp on the island. DO NOT GO TO OTHERS! You will be really sad when you see the conditions. This camp is away from busy roads and bustle of the towns. The elephants appeared healthy and well looked after. Staff were really nice.... More

Today my friend and I went and did the 2 hour elephant experience and it was well worth the money, you can see the elephants are treated well for, and happy, we did a long trek where the elephants could go at their own pace and stop and eat if they wanted too. We then went swimming with them and... More

We got to ride on a lovely elephant and then roll with him in the water. An overall enjoyable experience and we got to see all the other elephants too.

When on Koh Samui in January I decided against doing an elephant safari as it was all about seeing them play with footballs, stand on back legs etc... basically not what elephants do. We walked past Ban Chang Thai on the way into town and went in to have a look. For 100 baht you can feed the elephants and... More
