We came here as a part of our organized tour. We enjoyed our show very much and the elephants show incredible intelligence. It’s unavoidable for some people to get a mixed feeling, but I believe we should view it in the positive way that may...More
My only problem is the controvesy about chained elephants and how they are trained. Some say it is necessary to chain them others not so judge for yourselves. You can buy ,very cheaply, sugar cane and bananas to feed them. The elephant
ages vary. Watch...More
We went to the camp for the full morning with a group of people. These animals and their individual handlers are all very special. The animals are well cared for. We learned more in 3hours about the kindness and how brilliant the elephants are than...More

DO NOT GO. You will leave hating humans for how they can abuse such beautiful animals. You can see them using nails to insert into the elephants' ears to hurt them enough they will do all the tricks people love to see. PLEASE if you...More
Painting is not natural for elephants. In order for them to do that, Maesa Elephant Camp's mahouts beat them badly so they can learn how to paint, even inserting nails in their ears. The least that could be done is closing it down.
The show was more than an hour. Patience is needed to watch the entire show. Find out from your local tour agent what time is the elephant bath. I missed this portion which I learnt from the locals that it is a must see for...More
Save yourself the money and go to Elephant Nature Park. These elephants are living as they would in the wild. Not chained all day long!!!
I would also say get a private driver.
Have a nice trip.

I did not see either ox carts or bamboo rafts. My group was visiting the Maesa Elephant Camp to enjoy the beautiful elephants and their many talents. If you are interested in the bamboo rafting and ox cart rides you might want to check out somewhere like maetaeng elephant park. The Maetaeng Elephant Park in the same region Maesa Elephant Camp. There is a website you can get more info about packages and pricing.

We booked through our tour operator in the UK. Big mistake!! We specifically asked for a sanctuary...instead we got this hell hole. Please do not go here. By going You are supporting the cruel treatment of these beautiful animals. Is it natural for elephants to paint or play football?? They are chained up, unable to walk freely unless carrying a load of people on their backs. They are forced to do these things with the threat of a stick With a sharp metal prong on the end, this isn't natural. Please do Your research before going to Thailand and go to a sanctuary that rescues abused animals from places such as this. Thank you
