I cannot recommend this place highly enough! This place really needs people to visit to see the excellent work they are doing as well as getting a helping hand with looking after the elephants! After reading many of the reviews for the nature park it seemed like the best place to visit to see the elephants bring cared for properly. Nothing could have prepared us for the truly amazing experience we had there. The staff and mahouts love the elephants so much and want you to have the best close up encounters that you can. You feed the elephants as much as you want and you get to bathe and scrub them in the river-they are so happy and will join in and spray you with water! As an animal lover, parts of the day were difficult to take in as they try to educate and give you an understanding about how elephants can be used/treated in Thailand which is just awful but you know that they are doing all they can to help and look after the elephants here and they all seem very content.
Whilst we were there a new elephant arrived to the centre which was amazing to be a part of. Watching how the new elephants interact with it and seeing the excitement and joy that another elephant has been rescued from abuse. There was also a tiny baby (18 days old) that you were allowed to view too. This place is not about tricks or riding as this is seen badly so dont come here if that's what you want.
There are also over 300 dogs at the park and water buffalo.
