This park is amazing. Although we had only a day there wasn't one thing I could fault, from hotel pickup throughout the day.
The park grounds are immaculate; the mahouts clearly well trained and genuinely care about 'their' ellie (our mahout said it was like boot camp, and respect for elephants considered most important); lunch delicious!
It was lovely to see the younger elephants in training, and allowed to go at their own pace of learning - a youngster came out with us on our walk, learning her way so that she felt at home with the walk route. We met Nigel who started the park to provide a decent life for sumatran elephants whose own environment had been destroyed through deforestation. He was up to his elbows in mud, digging a new waterfall for the elephant nursery with his work crew- great to see for him that this park is more than just a business ( some of the park's proceeds g to pay for food and guardians for the elpehants he couldn't rescue, and who are stuck in what looks like a dustbowl in Sumatra)
Next trip we'll be staying a few nights!More
