  • The elephant and the rapport was thrilled at the airport to pick from. In fact, I think every Ding elephant camp found it again five months to conjure a little trauma but the elephant was letting people like me but sorry for the abuse should be to force termination of the elephant?

  • Elephant riding. Elephant "talent" show. Karen (long-necked tribal) village. Ride an ox-driven wagon. Halal buffet. Bamboo raft ride down the river. Was really fun feeding the super cute elephants. Found a package for 1,100 baht/person [more expensive at the gate and individually priced activities]. 4-stars for mild concerns of animal cruelty. Saw nothing thing actually cruel, beyond a limping ox pulling a wagon with passengers. I just have mixed feelings about camps like these as I am sure many do. Good experience overall.
  • There were many activities that everyone can enjoy. I love how they sent the elephants to school to be trained. The pictures they drew were awesome. I enjoyed the elephants ride as well as oxcart ride.
  • Interesting experience ... But they are huge, move heavily, I feel sorry for them while looking deep in their eyes, ... But anyway they are much more happy than their fellows in VN, most of them are tail-cut. People use tail feathers to make lucky rings (?) for sale to tourists (mostly chinese). So some people steal elephant tail from others by cutting the under part of it.
  • Downright Animal abuse. Elephants were beaten with sharp hooks; exhausted and bleeding. Boycott this Inhumane place.
  • We have 30-40 elephants around, and they dance to us, nice experience.
