My gf and I had a wonderful day out at this elephant camp. This is ideal for those who want to get away from the more crowded/ commercial camps. This came specialises in small groups. We had the camp to ourselves on the day. This enabled us to make a close connection with the elephants which will always be treasured. The camp staff are also really nice people. Art as guide doesn't just do this as a job, it is his passion along with the entire team. They have a really good connection with the elephants and they tell you the essentials of raising the elephants in order to keep them safe and sound. These creatures possess a very sensitive stomach that requires so much attention! Thanks to this team of Thai people, they are in good hands !!! Ps.. Art Rocks

This facility was truly amazing! It was a very personalized experience with an excellent guide. He obviously loves and cares well for the elephants and it shows. We had the experience of a lifetime riding, bathing, and caring for the elephants. It is a must!!

Art, the keepers, and two very personable elephants gave 2 seniors close personal attention. The elephants were content, seemed playful and affectionate toward one another, and appeared genuinely happy to see us . We rode a bit through the jungle, watched them frolic in the river, and assisted in their daily bath (all optional). We learned a lot about their care and keeping and spent a delightful day including a very nice lunch. Elephants are of great value in southeast Asia and the domesticated population significantly outnumbers the remaining wild herds, primarily because of habitat destruction. This sort of excellent "camp" will provide a delightful experience for tourists of every ilk while contributing to the preservation of these magnificent creatures

We had a great experience at Gachorgwa. Art, the 2 elephant keepers, as well as the photographer all do a wonderful job. We enjoyed the learning experience, feeding the elephants, the lunch and especially the ride and river bath! Completely recommend!

Had a fantastic day! We were picked up from our hotel and driven directly to the camp. Spent all day with two very friendly elephants. A delicious lunch was included and plenty of water. Very clean restroom facilities too. All in all highly recommended!
