After checking out all camps this looked the most animal "friendly" camp there was. We have made the big mistake in doing so and regreted every minute of it. Besides that the elephants are kept on a schain of less then 1 m all day, they keep a baby elephant circling like madd in a confined space all day doing... More

We decided on the 630am start day of washing, riding and bathing the elephants. We chose to share an elephant between the two of us and we defintely do not regret it. The park is fantastic, we were the only two on the 630am start so we got to feed all the elephants lots of food! It was amazing and... More

It has ten elephants kept in a kraal just off the main road that runs north to south on the western coast of the island. Three of us went with the intention of taking a one-hour 700 baht per person elephant trek... More

Obviously you pay to feed so you are contributing to their upkeep but you can't help wonder if the animals are ok.

Great 2hr experience we chose to swim with the elephants as we thought they would enjoy the water as much as we did . Would have like to have seen the elephants with a bit more freedom at the centre as they looked very hot and bored but we noticed they weren't kept there over night . There are other... More

If you don't want to ride the elephants you can just go and feed them. For B100 you can feed the mum and her very cute little baby and the mum says thank you with her trunk. You also have the option of a few different rides Our kids did the water one but they didn't exactly swim with the... More

Though it sounded fun, once I was on the elephant, I found it pretty risky. We took a 2 hour package (1,200 Bhat each for adults / free for children less than 4) which includes ride through the forest and swimming with the animal in the natural pond - not the right choice! The seat on which you are suppose... More
