  • Great explanation, authentic atmosphere. A discovery of the life of elephants and the lao world. This has been the best of our trip for my 7 year old boy. Thank you

  • It was not expected to experience such. 1st good thing: the centre is accessible by boat or canoe which limits the crowd of tourists. The staff is very friendly and passionate by the elephants. These are volunteer adventurers who will take the time to explain elephants without being boring! The setting is authentic and beautiful. We sleep in houses in wood/bamboo/tek on stilts along the river. You have a small terrace with hammock, bench and table. Queen bed with full screen. We'll visit the hospital, attend the baths of the elephants, a ride in their habitat, observe them and understand how they work. These are animals who learn their natural instincts as a result of traumatic abuse. At the base of 1 million, they are more than 800 today. The policy of natural birth is also addressed. A great experience 24 hours, very playful. Probably the best Center of all countries, where we are not lying. STRONGLY RECOMMEND

  • I volunteered for a week and it was top. If you want to ride elephants and touch all day is not the safe haven. However if you want to observe them in their natural environment and see happy animals go for it. Everything is done in accordance with the elephants. Whether games walks they are motivated food aid and not a stick etc. Plus the place is really very beautiful and lovely staff. They were able to put us at ease. The Center is located on the edge of a lake where you can kayak during your free time.
