This sanctuary was phenomenal. The care they had for the elephants was unreal. They pretty much let the elephants do whatever they wanted. Of course there was guidance, so at one point we went to a lovely muddy area where the elephants could play or lie down in if they chose to.

One of the lasting experiences of my trip! A truest wonderful day out. Picked up bright and early from the hotel and driven in a small truck to the sanctuary (probably about an hour away). There were probably about 6 others. When we arrived we joined up 2 other groups. The

What a wonderful review. We are so glad you enjoyed your experience with us. The small fee for the optional professional photography service also goes back into supporting the elephants so its a win win. Thank you for trusting in Maerim Elephant Sanctuary.
