  • The pickup was on time and comfortable, the guide was so great, and the elephant ride was absolutely incredible.  more »
  • Privacy-family farm was visited by two adults and two children 16 and 2 years. The farm had a great site. Book from the site. Kata Beach shuttle is free. Price 600 brother 20 minutes. 800 30 minutes, there is also a hour walk. For children it is a good pastime. As far as the tip, preferably driver please. Regarding reviews for elephant isprazhnjajushhihsja, I want to say that elephant is a beast and he will do it then-when it wants to. Bring your good mood and all will be well)))

  • 3 courses exist: 20 minutes (only in the forest), 30 (right on Karon Beach) and 50 (right on Karon Beach and Rawai) minutes. We chose 30 minutes, afraid that 50 minutes are too long... and the balalde went well. Little bit of sea at the beginning (and Yes, on the back of an elephant, his pitching lol) but it's nice all the same. Our guide was quite nice, with photo, explanation of a latex trees pose. Pity that at central level there is no more contact with the team to better interact elephants. We can buy bananas to feed them, but you find yourself alone, faced with these behemoths...

  • 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
  • Stop letting people profit from torturing elephants. All domesticated elephants are torn away from their mothers at a young age and tortured into submission until their spirits are broken. There is no other way to domesticate a wild animal. Open your eyes and realize that your whim is what perpetuates this awful practice.
  • I chose this place due to the reviews. It was great, probably the best elephant trek I've done over the years of family visiting and going on various ones in Thailand. Price is average maybe even a little lower. Elephants look well treated. Riders speak at least a little English which makes for a more interesting ride. The best thing was the views. You basically climb up and then down a mountain. The views are amazing. Very pleased as I thought this would be a standard 'grit and bear it' family outing but it was very enjoyable. Also it's close to the big Buddha and Kata Viewpoint which I shall go to now...
