  • If you like elephants and you want to contribute to their care or if you like crafts or have an artistic vein happen to take a look. The shop is open every day and you can buy an elephant and paint it yourself. Or you can buy one already painted by an artist. They have a tv where they put videos about elephants and part of the profits are for the protection and care of captive elephants.

  • I wandered by here last night and thought I'd drop in and purchase one of their beautifully hand-painted elephants (which come in various sizes) as a souvenir. Instead I ended up sitting down for an hour (bored husband at my side) painting my own! This place is wonderful, a great DIY keep sake and helpful staff.
  • Kids & Wife enjoy it, paint yr own elephant. But spend 2hrs there.
  • GREAT STORE!! like the painting workshop to save the elephant.
