“The best experience in a special place”
Reviewed November 4, 2013

This was my best experience of my trip around Chiang Mai. It was much more better than I thought. All the staff in the park was very nice, specially our guide Tum, who explained us how they take care of the elephants, their daily routine and the fact that some of them are rescued from bad practises, so elephants are treating really well in the park. We were 12 people in our group, so we had a lot of time to stay with the elephants, feed them and of course ride them, which was incredible! Tum made pictures and videos for us while we were with the elephants. I really recommend going there to have an amazing experience!

“Mind blowing awesomeness.”
Reviewed November 3, 2013

I was very concerned about supporting an organization that did not exploit the elephants or the people that work with them and this was the perfect place! We were able to spend lots of time with the elephants and I felt very safe with their level of expertise. Wow! It was a great all day event with lots of pictures to take home (they take pictures and post them on facebook the next day). I also felt like my money was going towards supporting the amazing elephants.

“a day to remember”
Reviewed November 3, 2013

this day was the highlight of our trip to chiang mai. our guide, aof, was a delight, engaging from start to end not only with all the adults in our group but with our 3 daughters between the ages of 6 and 11. the program is well run with feeding session to start, you are free to roam and get close, meet all the elephants and their trainers and slowly adjust to these gentle giants. then a lengthy yet informative command and trial session. aof was quick to start with my youngest, getting her on bareback with him and fear slowly turned to joy. each try became easier, and by the time you have your rides on your personal elephants after a delicious lunch, you're mesmerized by them and all their differing personalities. during rest time, the elephants roam and scratch, but we noted how engaged the mahouts were with their own elephants, always keeping a watchful eye. it was very endearing to witness their relatioship and to see genuine care. bathing time was a delight and as aof kept reminding us, go in with open minds.
truly an experience to cherish. keep up the great work!

“Amazing experience”
Reviewed November 2, 2013

I spent a wonderful day with the familly looking after the elephants and riding "Christina" and her baby "Sky". This family business is run with love, care and passion of the elephants, rescued from various Asian countries. I really recommend you to spend a day with them if you are looking for a great experience without many tourists around.
