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!!

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!
