Visited in 2012, but forgot to review. It was a reasonable experience, hot and a little uncomfortable, but a worthwhile ride...something ticked off my wish list

We went here mainly to support the place. They take in old elephants that people don't want anymore, so any help is appreciated. The elephants are well looked after and go to the mountain in the evenings to sleep, which I think is lovely. A...More

Riding an elephant was a life time dream, so this was dream accomplished. The staff seem to really care for the elephants. I dislike animal circus acts, so I was not pleased to see them put an elephant on a bicycle.

When I first looked into the elephant eyes (yes, you can come very close to them and even touch them) I saw so much power and wisdom! It's worth to go to get that feeling!

Great little place, especially for people with kids. The elephants look to be treated well and seem to be happy in what they do. Many chances to pet and ride. The staff there are also very friendly, though the language barrier might be an issue...More
