“extremely touristic”

Wangpo Elephant Camp
Reviewed September 24, 2013

I dont understand why suddenly in the middle of a day tour companies bring you to an Elephant camp and ask you to take an optional elephant ride through a manmade wood. Besides the rides are quite expensive as well. I would strongly recommend against this, its better to stay waiting when others are taking the ride than unnecessarily wasting money

We booked a day tour with Thailand Tours Center and with our guide Jackie, we went to Wangpo Elephant Camp. We reserved swimming, riding, bathing and playing with the elephants. First, Jackie was incredible - he knew what we would love the most, and made sure we had a great time! Once we got there he brought us to restrooms to change into bathing suits. Then we took a river raft down the river kwai. Next we were paired up with "April" and her handler. Jackie took a million pictures as we climbed on April and her handler yelled a command for the elephant to spary us with water - over and over. We had a great time and thank you Thailand Tours for bringing us to an incredible camp!

We just did this last week....we did the Elephant Bath...these animals are amazing however I do struggle with turning up and seeing them all chained up just swaying...the bath itself and water fight was cool....it's quite surreal being next to and on these big creatures....something you have to do in Thailand

great little elephant camp where you can play with the elephants in the river, beware of the dunking though! worth doing the river rafting too as it's quite a way out just to go for a ride and a play with the elephants.. great to fill a spare morning or afternoon..

We just took a short ride but those who did the elephant bathing looked to be having loads of fun. If you are unsure just do the riding, if you are confident sharing the water with such a big animal the river looked a blast.
