Baanchang is, in my opinion better than Patara elephant camp, even though this is less well-known. Location is perfect, out in the jungle, and the place has several packages to suit your needs.
The elephants are well-looked after (My girlfriend is keen on animal welfare, which is one of the reasons we picked this elephant camp). The guides speak fluent English, and upload pictures of their visitors to facebook. The guides and mahouts seem to be very enthusiastic with their jobs, which is important to making you feel welcome.
Prices are much more understandable than Patara, and it all goes towards the wellbeing of these elephants. You get to feed, ride, and bath the elephants. One elephant per one or two people, you get to keep the same one for the day and really build a connection with them.
Would recommend to all tourists.
