  • One of my best experiences. I am very proud of power having visited the country without being a tourist toxic that it exploits animals from there, and instead to have helped a little. The next time I will no doubt

  • We already had often heard about the bad treatment that get elephants and had therefore decided not to visit camps or the like. Elephantsworld is an exception as it here about a reception of elephants. They decide and not man. So if your money wants to spend a day with elephants, do it here and not in a camp where they treated badly. Guidance was well, everything well organized and a fantastic experience! Don't hesitate, just do it!

  • My girlfriend and I were at the 03.11.16 at home with the friendly giant! We reserved online, the confirmation came a day later (with the previous Note If no confirmation comes once again to writing), picking up where accommodation was in the specified time frame and the driver was very friendly, like the other volunteers also! The Division into groups was somewhat chaotic, as was sorted by languages! The lunch break from ONE (not like some people write two) hours was appropriate! Please think of changing things, you need them after bathing and scrubbing the "little" friends! To us water go in a bikini is strictly forbidden, because we must respect the Thai culture! To the reviews that here grumble about the price! 2500 baht for Thai conditions are pretty much clear but it's for a very good cause, it seems the animals to go here very well and that's the main thing, I would pay even more like! The event went as a whole six hours, five minus the pause, which really is something little, since you only build proper contact when swimming with the elephants and since it is already almost over! The preparation of the food (rice with pumpkin can be cooking, pull and shape) belongs to, but only by bathing it was absolutely worth! You get probably never again such a thing! The volunteers were very friendly and left no question unanswered. P.s., the plant was a total clean, also the toilets! I highly recommend this excursion to 100 percent!

  • 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.
