“Really exciting and up close encounter with the Elephants”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

A great experinece to learn about elephants plus have the opportunity to actually touch, feed, lead an elephant by its trunk and to be 'kissed' by its trunk. A bit sloppy, but really neat! Learned alot about elephants and was impressed at the attempts to provide a sanctuary for them here. The staff seemed to be very knowledgeable, caring about the animals and made us feel very safe even standing next to the 5-6 ton giants! A most worthwhile experinece even if a bit pricey. A once in a lifetime opportunity. Highly recommend it.

“Walking with the elephants”
Reviewed August 24, 2012

I liked it that before interacting with the elephants one of the guides will tell you important facts about these amazing elephants. Sad stories too about how they try to survive in this crazy world full of aggressive humans and their awful huge cities. Touching the elephants and walking with them is an unforgettable experience.
