This was my second visit to 9 Dee...this time with a group tour. It was just as good as the VIP tour. The interaction with the elephants is an unforgettable experience for myself and my kids. We were fortunate to have a small group and had plenty of time and opportunities to feed, swim and bath the elephants. It is a small centre with only 3 elephants but I enjoy the intimidate feel. The cost of supporting the elephants is high so they are unable to rescue more elephants at this time.

I hope you enjoy your time as much as we did!

My husband and I had a great time being the only people with the elephants. Highly recommend you go there. One on one with the elephants and Pang Pang is a great hostess. Elephants maybe big but the are gentle giants. Please go and see the beautiful creatures of our earth. Thank you for allowing us the wonderful experience we we never forget.
