  • I loved swimming with the baby elephants! Our guide was really a character, a super funny guy. The lunch was good. The elephants were treated very well here. This place is famous in Thailand and it might be the best elephant sanctuary in Thailand. A "must do" activity!
  • We all had a brilliant day today. It is a beautiful place. The elephants all seemed really content- it was great fun being so close to them. The staff were very informative and helpful. It was an exceptionally good day out - I cannot recommend it highly enough.
  • One of the best experiences I have ever had ! The trainers were really insightful. They knew how to treat the animals and instruct the visitors in order to a have a safe and fun time. I would definitely recommend this to people who loves animals. The view is also lovely as well!
  • A magical experience. Interacting with the elephants so closely, especially swimming with them, was very special. Our guide was knowledgeable and welcoming. The booking process was really easy too, including the private car transport from Bangkok to the sanctuary. I will never forget this place and hope to return one day. The animals were obviously well cared for and mahouts used positive reinforcement in all their interactions with them. I hope more people hear about this place and support their great work.
  • We as a family had one of the most amazing, unforgettable and unique times/experiences at elephant world. The staff here work amazingly hard and our guide 'mane' was so informative, knowledgeable and made our whole experience that much better. Huge thanks to the amazing hardworking staff and not forgetting the absolutely magnificent elephants.
