We went here as part of a tour. The elephants are free ranging and looked after very well .We enjoyed a ride up hill and down hill, also a trek back to base along the river. Finished up with the bathing of the elephants and a display of their capabilities, i.e. log shifting etc. Quite a unique experience.

We enjoyed the elephant show a lot, they did painting, kick football, basketball, etc, lovely show. Can do boat rafting and riding the elephants too, our tickets did not include it so we didn't try also.

This park has the elephants meeting the guests and performing. They also give elephant rides when the heat isn't too bad. The argument is they need the money to support the elephants. If the altternative is worse, the elephants appeared well treated and happy.

We really enjoyed riding the elephants. You pay to feed them as you go around the track but we did not mind that. Took about 45 minutes. We laughed a lot and would definitely do again. Did not stay for the show or raft riding etc as lots to do elsewhere.

We spent the day at the park and the whole day was very good. Posing for photos, elephants rides (not as scary as they look), a show including elephants painting, and then we went for the optional caring for elephants. With this you ride the elephant bare back and go on a trek to a muddy area where they have... More

This place has no price list. You go ask the ticket selling staff about the price. They charged me 2000 Thai per person. The receipt didn't show the price. I felt that this is not very honest. This place has elephant show (kicking soccer, slam dunk, pictures drawing, ...etc.), elephant riding, cow riding, lunch buffet, rafting. My 3 year old... More

It provides great cultural knowledge for anyone, as well as nice lunch buffet, it was great doing the boat rafting, riding the elephants, the on and seeing the shows. As well as getting a taste of the culture by visiting the Karen village.

The highlight of our Thailand trip Elephants are well trained, people friendly. Easy to take pictures with the elephants I thought the elephant trekking would be the highlight....turns out that the bamboo rafting was just as amazing! Incredibly scenic and worth every penny/bhat!
