“Simple pleasures”
Reviewed April 7, 2013

Francois and his extended family were the perfect hosts to our family of four. If you need a break from the craziness of the "real" world, visit Ganesha Park and hang out with the animals. We were so relaxed after our visit that we immediately started planning our next trip. Before you go, map your trip. We found out that the Kanchanaburi region is huge and it took longer than we anticipated to get to Thong Pha Phum. That was only a minor blip and didn't diminish our fun. Merci Francois!

Great experience! Amazing welcome from Francois and his extended family (including Rocky the monkey). The quality time spent with the elephants was a unique experience, far away from touristic places in other parts of Thailand. François and the Mahout just take good care of them. Our children LOVED this time with the elephants, swimming with them in the lake, feeding them pineapples, etc. Will return next time I come back from Thailand.

It was very hard to find a place on July because there's a lot of people at the period but fortunetaly for us, a couple couldn't go there finally and we get a possibility. Finally we really thank this couple for their cancellation because it was wonderful, everything was great : the place, the family, the weather, the food, the price and of course the elephants !!!

If you look for a 5 stars resort, for sure you're not on the right place, but if you want something unusual, amazing, peaceful, off the beaten track and very funny, you've find the perfect place!!

Certainly one of our best experience in our Thailand trip, we recommend it to anyone that's a unique experience much more personal than just a one-hour ballad on elephant's back that you can meet all around Thailand, there's a real exchange with them especially during the bath in the lack where elephants and their Mahout play with everybody in the best mood possible !!

Special thank's to François, the french owner who is very pleasant and funny !!

Go there, sincerely !!

Great family ! Amazing welcome, you just feel at home !

Great view, so peaceful place, far from everything. So great to spend time with Elephants (two at that time). François (the owner) and the Mahout just take good care of them and you know that there is true love for animals (a monkey, two dogs,...).

For Children it must be incredible.

The best thing : the bath in the lake with the elephants !!!!
