We spent a full day with this wonderful family. Dada is an excellent host and moderator. We left with a warm heart and total satisfaction. Dada and her husband shared an experience with us that we will treasure a lifetime. A full day started with food prep. Elephants eat continuously so the day was centred around what they like to do the most. We followed them and observed them and yes...we rode them, bareback. Feeling their energy and muscles moving beneath us was amazing. As we ate our delicious lunch on a deck overlooking their 26 acres.We were entertained by their activity. They even peaked over deck looking for a handout. I can not recommend this experience enough. I have never been so dirty and so happy. After we changed back to cloths we were taken to a natural hotsprings to clean up. Fantastic!

My boyfriend and I were looking for a place in Chaing Rai to see elephants in a natural setting, and this was a great way to do that. Dada and her husband were extremely kind and the elephants, Dee and Thic, were amazing. We literally chopped up banana trees to feed to the elephants, we bathed them, and we watched as they were able to roam free around their beautiful plot of land. It was just my boyfriend and I, and it was a day we will never forget. Dada also cooked us a delicious vegetarian home-cooked meal and treated us like family. We can not recommend this enough.

We decided to arrange a visit here as it appeared very ethical and there was no riding. We were not disappointed, we were collected from our hotel and transported to the EPP where we were met by Dada who told us all about the project, it's origins and the Karen tribe. We were given Karen clothes to change into before we prepared bamboo for the elephants. the mahout went to collect the elephants Dee and Dick whilst we prepared the food for them. When Dee & Dick arrived we watched them eat and fed them by hand. The mahout then guided Dick into the river where we bathed him. Dee wasn't so impressed so we washed her with the hose. Both elephants were beautifully gentle and allowed us to touch them, stroke them and spend time with them. We then walked the elephants before having some lovely food cooked for us by Dada. All in all an amazing day where we learned so much and were treated exceptionally well. I cannot recommend this project enough, and the care, attention and love given to these animals by Dada and the team is just amazing. Thank you for giving us such a special experience, we would love to come back some time in the future xxx

We only can recommend to visit Dada and their nice and friendly elephants! :) We have been there two days and one exciting night in the jungle, prepared food, bathed them, petted them :), made medicine and vitamins and have been together with them and their mahouts for a long time. In the evening they go into the jungle and come back the next morning and then you start again the super interesting and enjoyable program. Dada speaks English very well and explains a lot. Also she has a little museum to show how her ancients lived and what tools they had to make the day. She does all that you enjoy the event, prepares very good food and helps with all you can think of. My son got a cut in the finger and she made a helpful medicine to put on it and it was fine. Go there and enjoy this very different life for some days or at minst for some hours!!!!
