Attended "camp" with family during vacation. Staff were informative and kind but do kind of robotically do their job due to the crowds. You get to ride an elephant around a jungle area with rice patties, fruit trees and finish through a water moat. Elephants...More

Upsetting treatment of animals forced into close physical contact with tourists - avoid at all costs.

This is a fantastic experience and the animals are really well looked after from what I can see. You can ride elephants and take photos with honey bears. Also is a chocolate pod factory on site that you can do tours at. Fantastic for kids...More

An absolute disgrace how the elephants and other animals (monkeys) were treated. These animals are not for our entertainment they are wild animals.

I'm really shocked about this kind of "entertainment". I'm surprise in 2017 people stil believing in exploitation of animals like to pass a good time. Animals are not ours to entertainment! You can visit a country, a sanctuary and save those animals. Please! STOP IT!
