  • We were very excited to get to ride / interact with elephants up close however we ended up feeling sick and uneasy after this horror show! This place is awful. The elephant we road on had multiple massive open wounds which were bleeding / oozing with puss. This poor animal needs medical attention. The guide kept beating the elephant for no reason in the open wound. This was just hell. We paid for a 50 min trek and he only gave us 20 minutes but at that point we didn't care and wanted out asap. Don't go to this place the animals are not taken care of. We went to another place called Khaosok Discovery Elephant Park this place was way better the elephants were in good shape and they didn't beat them either.
  • Well managed and efficient, came to pick us within an hour of making the booking. Also elephants seemed well cared for.
  • Elephants are amazing but stuff is crazy!!! In time we were feeding animals one stupid man came to small elephant and shouted him from slingshot!!! This elephant just stayed!!! This man a little bit fat, have a beard and speak Russian a little bit. Let him now who is he!!!
  • Welcome to the horror show First the trip was quite nice. But what happened in the end destroyed the day. When we were about 5 minutes before the end of our tour, our young elephant stayed in the grass to sniff. Since this did not please the tourguide and he called the elephant, this did not come. So that the man is enclosed with a kind (looks like an icepike) on the ears of the elephant. The ears of the elephants are very sensitive and the skin is there only a few millimeters thick. Of course, this immediately panicked and has begun to run backwards (Even When we was sitting on the elephant) When the elephant did not follow the Tourguide after his beating, when he was afraid, he continued his attack.it was horrible!! I will not forget the painful cries of this elephant for the rest of my life. My heart is bleeding. I left this Camp crying. Elephantriding never again! And if you want to do it anyway, please do it Not in this Camp!!!
  • PLEASE DON'T RIDE ELEPHANTS ABROAD. THEY ARE SUBJECT TO 'PHAJAAN', A TRADITION WHERE BABY ELEPHANTS ARE LITERALLY TORTURED. 50% OF ELES SUBJECT TO PHAJAAN DIE, OF THOSE WHO SURVIVE, 50% GO MAD. SPREAD THE WORD AND GOD BLESS
