  • When you read the notes on 'training' the elephants, you understand why there is a growing movement to have elephants unchained A good experience to understand better - maybe not so good for the elephants
  • Nice place to spend like around 1h watching the baby elephants with their mothers. There is also a room with info about elephants and the domestication proccess. It was quite a shocking reading for me.
  • The place of breeding center is fine but authority should think about to remove the chain from baby elephant, fencing should be needed repairs.
  • Could be so much better. Walk there was much better than the centre. 50 rps entrance is fair I guess.
  • I though the breeding center allow the elephant to be free in a specific space but they are attach with chain around their feet. However we saw the elephants and the babies going walking to the river and enjoying nature. Also, the amazing wild male elephant "Ronaldo" came at the breeding center to see the female and everybody was stressed because he could attack. Great experience ;)
