This is an ethically run park with a great one-on-one experience. We booked through the coffee on tour company and were well taken care of. Would recommend at any time.

Elephant Nature Park was amazing! They do an excellent job of educating visitors on the abuse elephants (and other animals) suffer at the hands of uneducated tourists. The day time programs were great, the accommodations very nice (was still cool without air conditioning) and the...More
