Beautiful surroundings, great Guides, good food. This is one of the few places where they treat the elephants as they should. No rides, no sticks, no hooks

Incredible place and really vital to help understand the challenges throughout Thailand with regards to elephant welfare and learn what the rescuers are doing to help ensure elephant safety across Thailand. The expert keepers take you around the park, showing you how they rescue elephants from unsafe conditions, how they have created safe natural environments to help rebuild their trust... More

Go learn about the elephant trade in Thailand. It is a multi million dollar industry which runs on the severe abuse of elephants. Elephant nature park rescues these animals and allows you to interact with them. Get up close and personal and learn about their lives in captivity. I guarantee you will be angered and never want to see an... More

Did a lot of research before visiting any establishments that feature these majestic creatures. We finally decided to support ENP. Great day at the park but it is severely overloaded with tourists. We attended the morning tour. We expected it to be more genuine and sincere. However, the guide was great. But I understand that the more tourists that visit,... More

The ENP is a special place. My best friend volunteered here a few years ago and hasn't stopped raving about the place and how special it is and she is right. We learned so much about these amazing, beautiful and intelligent animals, and got to see a few baby elephants the most adorable! The people here take great care of... More

Initially, we wanted to do the single say visit but we left it so last minute that we had to pick one of the more expensive tour packages. We decided to go with "Pamper a Pachyderm" and were not disappointed! In fact, it was a blessing in disguise that we choose this because there was only 8 people in our... More

An absolutely MUST if you staying in or near Chiang Mai. This was the highlight of our trip. My husband and I booked the Hope for Elephants package, which included pick-up from our hotel, lunch (which was delicious) and a small group of us spending the day with a herd of elephants. We helped clean and prepare their food, fed... More

My husband and I visited the elephant nature park (one day visit). It was our favorite part of our entire trip! No riding or abusing the elephants here. Safe place for all animals. It was the coolest experience. We went during peak holiday season so we booked our trip months in advance! Don't support any of the elephant trekking at... More
