My partner and friends had a wonderful time at the sanctuary and it's so wonderful how they're rescuing all these animals. What I found strange though is how for lunch, most of the dishes served were meat. It's strange how so many people care about...More

One of the best kept secrets in the area! This is really worth visiting if you love elephants, but bear in mind that you need to book a spot in advance. It is located in a very rural area southwest of Bangkok, so we decided...More

Wildlife Friends of Thailand rescues wildlife while allowing tourists to get close to nature and actually bathe and feed elephants. The 1800 baht ($60.00) fee for admission is well worth the unique daylong encounter with rescued animals; dedicated guides reveal shocking tales off former abuse...More

Very pleased with the day. The best part was definitely after lunch. Only improvement I think should be done is less talking when walking past all the animals before lunch.
