  • I would like people to be aware of the damage that do them to these magnificient animals, they require them to do jobs forzcos carrying tourists, for hours and all the days of his life, are intelligent and aware of everything that happens and animals of abuse to receive, what are not conscious is the force that has and that could put an end to all human who mistreat them...

  • When you go to an elephant place look carefully at tbe brochure. Some let you ride, others only look and touch. At this one you can ride.  more »

  • My wife and I had a wonderful time! When we first got on the elephants we were shocked by how tall they are and how high we were but we got used to it. We had two mamas, and two babies were tagging along. We walked down a road through a village to the river, with the two mahouts managing things. The elephants were keen to eat the vegetation on both sides of the road - they have to eat about 300 pounds of leafy matter a day. The best part was when we got to the river. The four elephants, and the two of us, got to play around in the river together. We could rub sand on their skin, which they seemed to enjoy, splash them, and pet them. Eventually the mahouts asked if we wanted to stay longer. We were ready to quit so we got back on the elephants and ambled back up to their stable. During our little trip there were no chains, ropes, benches, chairs, steel hooks or steel frames involved. Just us and the elephants. The mahouts had wooden sticks about 2 feet long with a wooden hook at one end. Mostly they controlled the elephants with their voices. Both of us had lots of experience with horses. I can imagine that if we'd had no experience with large animals we would not have played so closely with them in the river, but we would have been fine riding them. We wished we had learned the elephant commands before arriving. All in all, this was an extraordinary experience which we feel very fortunate to have experienced. Thanks to the elephants and their friends, the mahouts.
  • Loved it. Small camp where elephants are not harrassed all day by hundred of tourists. No show just fun rides to the river swimming with them.
  • Amazing, the best experience with animals
