  • No question, the elephant is super and the project stands out in terms of sustainability and handling of elephants from others! However you pay a pole ($205 for two half-days and an overnight stay) for relatively little contact with the elephants, we got much more on a theoretical basis which was allowed with the elephants or not also remained unclear. Also it is in contact with elephants in two days only two times 45 minutes! Also somehow missed the 'warmth', the project is financed to 90% of entry money but got a thank you or 'they're nice that' not to hear. The Center is located is a very simple and p139. Also on things like wifi or similar you may not adjust.

  • I just came home from my week at the ECC and to be quite honest, I am home-sick to return. In hopes I do not sound too melodramatic, I have an ache in my heart. My experience as a volunteer has impact...  more »
  • Huge unforgettable pleasure to see up close and learn about these extraordinary animals and their ways of life, at the slow pace but thinking of their intelligence, their size, their games and their tenderness... when the man adapts to the animals and makes them a dignity, the encounter is great. Spends 2 wonderful days in this project amazing leads by a team passionate and exciting that I recommend highly to the relaxing of the big beasts and the nature.

  • Staff who are working is super friendly and knowledgeable. The centre is well designed and teaches us a lot about the elephants. Do not expect to have much interaction with elephants, you especially to observe. You can touch and feed them, but you don't show it.
