We had a wonderful day with the elephants.The elephants are well cared for and didn't appear stressed at all.The show was good, the elephants were so keen to do the tasks.Their paintings were just fantastic.We enjoyed the ox-cart ride and the bamboo raffting.The orchid farm with the butterflies was also extremely good.

The best activity in this park is the elephant ride and elephant show.The experience of riding in the elephant is very unique and exciting..But be sure you are physically fit to ride. Aside from the Elephant ride you will love to see the Elephant show which will highlight the different talents of an elephant from dancing, sports to the intricate painting.The park is a mix of tribal and modern when it comes to facilities which is really enjoyable.

Make sure you stay for a show and ride an elephant here. There is not enough to spend a half day but definitely 2-3 hours. The show is worth it, about an hour and you ride an elephant through the river. They move slow but it's fun. There are plenty of gifts to buy friends and take a lot of pictures. The staff was amazing, make sure to tip your elephant with sugarcane and have them pose for a picture.

We were told that this was the best elephant park, and although we didn't see the others, we thought it was fabulous. The elephants seemed to be treated really well here. The show was amazing and we were suprised at how long you acutally rode the elephants for. They took you across the river and to a small villiage for a quick visit. Then you get back on the elephants and ride them back to do some ox-carting. Then you hop on a private bamboo raft where they take you on a long ride down the river through the camp. We definitely recommend this tour to anyone!!
