  • We spent a day at Elephant world. This seemed to us more than enough. The day remained a very pleasant, especially for our young son. But the magic, the authentic side of the day spent in true proximity with elephants, we have not really felt it. The sequence of activities, is mainly used to occupy the time waiting for the magic moment, swimming with the elephants. And there, (too many tourists, too little elephant?) We urge you, as another group of tourists, is already waiting... Anyway, this still liked our three children, but given the price it's still an activity that seems to be very lucrative. Hope it will really to elephants.

  • We had a great day with your family to Elephantsworld. We enjoyed the small gift on arrival. Volunteers are always very nice to listen to us! The elephants are pampered. We learned a lot. The meal was very good and plentiful. Really nothing to say.

  • Great Place. Great to interact with the rescued elephants. Lunch was great.Hiyel pickup was also great. They just need more funding please to help them aquire the land the use. Thank you for a great time
  • Unforgettable experience up close with these amazing creatures. It was such a refreshing experience to work for a good cause in the midst of the tourism industry. The volunteers were awesome and the native staff very kind. I recommend this to anyone wanting to see something fantastic, make great memories or do good in the world.
  • We had a wonderful time cooking washing and feeding elephants. The elephants seem to be treated well at this place. Trip was well organized and also the lunch was magnificent. The only downside was that there was not enough time to go to the gift shop at the end of the day.
  • We spent a full day with our 5 year old daughter here and enjoyed it very much. We learned a lot about elephants and of course we got to interact with them, too. Feeding, preparing special meals, even bathing with them in the river, scrubbing elephants was a lot of fun.
  • It's a must visit if you're around Kanchanaburi. Forget al the commercial camps where they put 6 tourists on one animal for half an hour. Spend a day helping out in taking care of old and disabled elephants, that are taken care of in this not for profit organisation. Bathing the elephants is esspecially awesome, but both the parents and our kids utterly enjoyed the experience.
