Not much left say that has not already been said. A beautiful experience that should not be missed. We were a group of about 9. I think we all booked Karen because the other options of the same cost at the park were not available. Speaking for myself I was concerned that this was kind of an afterthought option that... More

We loved meeting those peaceful giants. Elephant nature park offers a very relaxing day. You start by feeding the elephants, a walk in the park where you meet them up close. Then you stop for a big Thai buffet. Finally, the afternoon is about bathing the animals and seeing them take mud baths. Really nice experience! The sun might be... More

It was so spectacular and amazing that i had to purchase one of the beautiful paintings. Also we went on for an elephant ride plus bull cart ride for 600 thb. The experience... More

All the reviews are true; you will leave as a passionate, empathetic person who just had the best day of their life with elephants. We did the Pamper the Pachyderm experience, and it was fantastic. We were lucky enough to have one of the ambassadors join our group. He was much more talkative and knowledgable than our guide. The scenery... More

This is an ethical elephant sanctuary. The love for animals here is unbelievable. Elephants, dogs, cats, buffalo, pigs, etc. can all be found here. They take such good care of the animals and the people. The food they serve is all vegan and seriously delicious. The accommodations are what you would expect and cleaner than I imagined. They work very... More

Excellent for a day trip. We had a really good guide (May). The trip started with the feeding of the elephants. Then we went for a two hour walk trough the hills. The mud bath was a lot of fun. After that we went for a 'swim' with the elephants in the swimming pool :) definitely worth the money and... More

Elephant Nature Park was definitely one of the highlights of my trip to Thailand. We did a one day trip, and even though it was rainy while we were there, it was still an amazing experience. Elephant Nature Park provided a lot of information about the mistreatment of elephants in Thailand and how they rescue elephants. Our guide, BeeBee, was... More
