I loved this. The caretakers obviously love the gentle giants. We were well taken care of on the journey and lunch was great. The drive out is long but beautiful. I would do this again.

Sanctuary where we were feeding, hugging and bathing with very happy and people friendly elephants. Amazing experience. We extended our trip and guys took us also to Doi Inthanon and we had a complete visit to this beautiful region.
