I always enjoy coming back to this dedicated wildlife rescue center and see the elephants walk freely in a huge semi wild environment. Hearing the gibbons and seeing them swing from tree to tree is also enchanting. Especially when you get to learn the stories about their sad past. I have been to WFFT 3 times. The last time was with my students. The animals are wonderfully treated and Edwin, the founder of this rescue center does his utmost to bring a better life to all of them. His guide speaks perfect English and is enthusiastic about her job. I would recommend anyone to stay at least 1 or 2 nights at one of the bungalows, I love Phants. By coming here, you feel you are already helping in the preservation of wildlife.

Visiting WFFT was honestly one of the best experiences of my life! I live in Bangkok and have visited an elephant sanctuary before, but that was not a patch on this experience. We stayed for one night in the lodge and could see elephants roaming freely from our balcony-amazing! Even when we were at the pool, they were there and we were mesmerised! We did the tour whilst we were here, and it was so good to get more of an insight into the different animals’ stories, although utterly heartbreaking. I cried retelling them to my mum on my return. It’s so good to see these guys doing such good work to rescue so many different animals, and give them a better life. Having seen the other side of how animals are treated in Thailand, I am just so thankful for people like this. Also great value for money-4000 baht per room and includes 3 meals. Don’t think it’ll be my last visit!

A truly fantastic place that rescues abused animals and rehabilitates them and if possible releases them back into the wild. We stayed at the I Love Phants lodge and enjoyed amazing views and delicious food. The staff were enthusiastic and knowledgeable. There is a high level of animal welfare and the half day tour was very informative. This is a must thing to do whilst in Thailand 10/10

I spent a full day here, in mid-February with 7 other people. We all loved our experience but felt that the 1/2 day experience really misses out on the best part of the day...... the elephant encounters. The rest of the activities were really nice, too-- but to make the most of your experience, spend a little bit extra $ and time for the full day. They are doing wonderful work here and the staff here were all EXCELLENT!! And the included lunch was delicious-- with wonderful views of the monkey "islands". I would definitely recommend making the trek out here!

So, we had the tipp to go there by ‘lonely planet’. And, people, I can tell you, it was amazing. We had the full day tour. Including some very good food, feeding and showering an elephant, see a lot of different animals and listen to their stories by an Tourguide-by-heart. It was amazing. I am so thankful, for raising awareness on how elephants and other wild animals are treaten and abused to be funny objects for tourists. Everyone who wants to ride an elephant should learn about how they are ‘trained’ for that. Instead of spending money for riding an elephant, to there. See the monkeys and apes, the croc, and the elephants. They doing such an important job. Support them!
