Do not go to Bakas Elephant Park. This park is primarily aimed at extracting as much money as possible from tourists, with little regard to the welfare of the animals.
As all the other reviews have said, this was by far the worst "attraction" I have ever been to. The elephants were clearly underfed and the one we were on kept trying to stop and eat, which resulted in a sharp bang on the head with the keeper's stick. On the way back we passed through the area where the elephants sleep - a big concrete pad dotted with large chains. There was one elephant chained there unable to move when we rode through. Once you arrive back at the park the elephant is made to perform a few tricks with you on its back, before you disembark and are quickly ushered away from any further interaction with the elephants (unless you want to pay extra to buy some fruit). From here, things only get worse, as you then see the park's other animals. Parrots chained to trees, desperately trying to bite the chain off. Sad-looking monkeys in cages that are only big enough for small birds, with no water at all. There were also a couple of young orang-utans wearing nappies that you could hold and take photos of if you pay extra.
