  • We got recommendations visit this elephant farm from more than one place, and even if we're not the elephant experts, was affected by the elephants to be satisfied with their lives. The employees were nice and laid back. Swimming with elephants was a really fun experience! Uimapaikalta got a ride back out of the Fanti:) We also went on a trek, so we sat in a seat in a basket on top of the elephant. After the hike we feed them bananas. Had a great time! I hope fanteilla is just as well, really what it's on top of the Woods looked like.

  • Selfishly I liked the place, interesting bathroom with the pachyderm and the chance to get back into the river. Nice hiking on the baldacchino...ma I don't know how much they're happy elephant. The most enjoyable was when we offered him the mini bananas: there I was happy. To be honest, I had some feelings of guilt, then I thought it luckily my elephant had 28 years, didn't seem compelled to picozzina shots but was spontaneously (maybe because it was only me on the back, while the others were 2 persons) and in addition I am light, I think of all those who find natural to ride a horse.

  • Home to the first mahout di. riding on the back of an elephant with it's exciting. A big elephant is cute. Staff is friendly, prices are adai kop. A trip to ก้สะดวก can comfortably ride taxi from the port to it at all the families that I'm hurt?

  • In my eyes the best elephant camp on Koh Chang. I send many many customers to Ban Kwan Chang and never had any complaints! The Camp is located in the middle of the Jungle, no road crossing or boring standing under roof for the elephants involved like in many other camps on Koh Chang. The transfers are always in time and we'll caretaking of the guests during there stay.
  • Please please do your research before visiting any elephant camp! Your money supports an awful industry here, there are much more reputable places. If you care at all about the elephants you'll spend money where it benefits the animal. They suffer immensely where elephant rides are promoted and bull hooks used.
  • Beautiful place...
  • Not knowing if we were to ban or no activities related to elephants we went there to see the way in which a camp, backed to a foundation for the preservation of the pachyderms, treated animals. There is no apparent outsourcing hurt, apart from the fact that the elephants at rest have 2 legs chained strongly hindering their movements. The malaise sets in when you notice mounds of debris and glass near the animals. You then ask for information on the Foundation by the camp, back you the tourist prospectus in response. If your notice is not yet settled, posters put up in the camp and putting forward shooting of Koh Chang should help... TripAdvisor has decided in October 2016 to put an end to such activities online reservations.

  • It is difficult to discern whether the elephants are treated well as a layman. In my opinion Yes. There's the mahouts and elephants work from northern Thailand and Laos here better living conditions on Koh Chang.
