Amazing place with staff that cares for Animals and visitors. When you go on a holiday, Please support these sanctuaries Where Animals are taken care of and they are not hurt or drugged for ”tourist attraction” Enjoyed the day 5/5!

Up close and personal with some rescued elephants. Well worth the visit. Do the morning session if you are able because the group size should be smaller. We had a blast and certainly got our fill of time with the elephants.

If your someone who cares about the welfare of animals and doesn't want to support the torture industry for these beautiful creatures then put your money here and help support a worthwhile cause. Feeding, bathing and observing these beautiful creatures is a heartwarming experience.
