We were picked up and drop off at our hotel. We went for a 2 hours tour, trekking in the jungle and swimming with the elephants. They provided water, fruit and Coke. My kids, 9 and 11 could also have a ride just behind the elephant head. They took lots of pictures for us. We could also feed the elephants... More

It was amazing tons pend the day with these beautiful animals! They seem to be well taken care of, washed, fed etc... the only thing we didn't like was the tool they use to keep them on track. We had a very well tempered and obedient girl elephant and rode her in a basket and bare back. The supply food... More

My son and I did this today and it was amazing! Pick up and drop off at our hotel, with 9 other people. Served fresh fruit and water then headed out in pairs on elephants. Got to ride bare back ( wow) and the forest is beautiful. Fed the elephants fruit and then a swim with them in the river,... More

They provide transportation from/to the resort. We got to ride the elephants and they took us through the jungle nearby. At the end of the trip, we can swim with them.

I was very excited to go here, but left feeling awful. I was a little apprehensive about riding the elephants, but while we were on ours, the trainer repeatedly hit him in the head and clawed his ears whenever he seemed scared to go up or down the trekking hills. I was extremely uncomfortable with this. We did get to... More

Not sure if the elephants are treated well. Kind of had second thought to do this. The ride through the jungle was very rocky and short to my feeling, we were on a young elephant (12 years) who did not had a lot experience. Spotted a lot of butterflies. Driver ask for a tio, I felt somewhat awkward because we... More

There are around 5 elephant camps on the island of koh chang. This one was recommended to us as the one that treats the elephants well. We opted for the 2 hour trip where you get picked up ftom your hotel and dropped back again. I have to say that we absolutely loved our experience. When we got there we... More

It doesn't matter that the place looks like natural habitat for the elephants. It doesn't matter if the staff actually do like their animals and treat them ok. Trekking is wrong, elephants are not made for this. We only went to feed them for one day and it still broke my heart to see them all chained up or walking... More

We visited the elephant camp today with five children, ages ranging from 15-6, they all loved it! It was very well organised, friendly and a happy place to visit. The children particularly loved bathing with the elephants. It was all done in a natural environment with a focus on caring for the amazing elephants. We booked the experience ourselves the... More
